Enrollment Is 
Down In Juco; 
174 Register 

Junior College enrollment for the 
year 1950 is down approximately 19 
per cent as compared with last year, 
figures from the olfice of Dean K. R. 
Galle reveal. 

This year there are 97 freshmen 
including 35 women and 62 men; 77 
sophoi»»ores, including 25 women and 
52 men. Last year there were 170 
freshmen with 44 women and 96 men 
and 75 sophomores, with 27 women 
and 48 men. 

Out of town students have enrolled 
from Burden, Ashton, Geuda Springs, 
Cedar Vale, Belle Plaine, Atlanta, 
Rago, Augusta, Caldwell, Altoona, 
Milton, Dexter, and South Haven, 
Kansas; Shell Knob and Carrollton, 
Missouri; and Newkirk, Chilocco, and 
Marysville, Oklahoma. 

Council Names 
5 Cheerleaders, 
Chairmen for Year 

A head cheerleader, new cheerlea- 
ders, and a new membership by-law 
were the business items on the agenda 
for the meeting of the student council 
on Sept 25. 

Jean Edwards and Delores Morton 
were re-elected as cheerleaders. Jean 
was chosen head cheerleader for this 
year. Three cheerleaders chosen were 
Aline Wilhite, Esther Brown, and 
Phyllis Stover. 

The program chairman for this year 
is Winston Menish. Helen Scamme- 
horn is the social chairman. Com- 
mittees will be appointed later. 

Under the new by-law the editor of 
Tiger Tales is automatically a member 
of the student council. 

Haines Tries Visual 
Aids for Industrial 
Education Courses 

Forrest Haines, instructor in in- 
dustrial arts, is doing research in vis- 
ual aids to education. 

Mr. Haines has photographed, in 
color, the operations of upholstery 
from the carpentry involved to the 
finisehed product. 

He uses an Argus 21 with two 
floods. His hopes include photogroph- 
ing every phase of hand and machine 
operation used in the industrial arts 

These photos are to be used as mat- 
erial for the master's degree study on 
which he is working. 

The basic plans for Arkalah are 
started with the junior college faculty 
helping. A. E. Maag is general man- 
ager of the coronation program. 

Offered by 
Civic Clubs 

Three civic organizations are offer- 
ing scholarships to junior college stu- 
dents. Each scholarship will pay fees 
and books to the extent of jj>50 per 

The Kiwanis and Lions clubs are 
each offering two and the Shelton 
Beaty Post of the Americian Legion 
is offering four. 

As yet the particulars are not com- 
plete. Dean K. R. Galle states that 
he hopes to get the arrangements 
comleted soon, establishing the pro- 
cedure on which scholarships are to 
be awarded. 

Prior to this time the Kiwanis and 
Lions had been giving scholarships 
of $100 to junior college graduates 
to pay on expenses in other colleges. 
Dean Galle feels that the present ar- 
rangement is much more satisfactory 
and advantageous to the junior col- 

Graduates of '49, Bernice Thomas 
and Phil Parker, now at K-State, were 
the last recipients. 

Chaplin Leads 
Juco Council 
For 195CV51 

Leighton Chaplin is the new student 
council president. He won over Bill 
Neal on a close race, 60 votes to 55. 

Chaplin will succeed Helen Leach as 
president. He was the sophomore class 

Sophomore officers elected were 
Bob Darrough. president; Jean Ed- 
wards, vice-president; Betty Webb, 
secretary - treasurer, and Mildred 
Marrs and Jim Bossi, student council 
council representatives. 

Freshman officers for this year are 
Dick Ahlers, president; Carol Wil- 
liams, vice-president; Bob Beck, sec- 
retary - treasurer and Ray Cockrum 
and Wayne Parker, student council 

After graduating from the local 
high school in 1946, Chaplin was in 
the navy two years. He then returned 
here to work on his mathematics de- 
gree. Last year he was on the basket- 
ball sqaud and forensic team. 

Leighton should be a good manager 
as he is married and has two children, 
a daughter two years old and a son 
one year old. 

This was the closest student council 
race for president in the last six 
years, according to P. M. Johnson, 
student council supervisor. 

H. Ramsey, Fox

The Tiger Action Club is organized 
and ready to go for the game tomor-

College language clubs will be or-

Miss Anne Hawley, modern language 
instructor, has announced, there will 
be two clubs, the German Club and 
the Spanish Club. 

Each year these clubs are started 
to help the language student enjoy 
his studying, to add entertainment as 
well as educational material. The 
short meetings and proglottis are 
sometimes held at school or may be 
at some member's home. 

The programs may consist of a dis- 
cussion of the country, a movie, 
music, games, or talks by people from 
the country or who have visited the 
country where the language is spoken. 

Anyone enrolled in the German or 
Spanish classes is automatically a 
member if he or she wishes to be, and 
anyone who has studied the language 
is invited to attend. There are no dues.

Face Bengals 

The Tigers will go against the

Alumni Beat 
Tigers in First 
JC-Alumni Game 

In the first Alumni-Juco football 
game, a star studded Alumni team 
beat the junior college squad 14-7, 
September 8. With the expert running 
of Jack Mitchell, Earl Grinnell, and 
Clint Webber, the Alumni marched a 
total of 220 yards on the ground be- 
fore the final gun. 

After a scoreless first quarter, Buel 
Beck drove into the end zone for the 
first Tiger tally. The Bengals con- 
verted the extra point with a fake 
kick and pass to Beck. 

Not to be bettered, the Alumni 
squad quickly countered with 7 points 
to tie the score 7-7. • 

The half ended with the Bengals 
just two yards away from a touch- 
down. Both teams failed to score in 
the third quarter. 

In the last minutes of the game 
Grinnell intercepted a pass to start 
the Alumni on their final march to 
pay-dirt. Webber carried the ball in- 
to the end-zone and Mitchell, ran 
across for the extra point. 

The Bengals were unable to tally 
again although they gained 39 yards 
in the waning minutes of the game. 

A large crowd attended this fisst 
(?amc sponsored by the newly formed 
Ouarterback Club. The proceeds will 
be used to obtain football scholarships

Red Ravens 
Down Tigers 
34 to O 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens blanked 
the Juco Tigers last Thursday uight 
while they were rolling up 34 points. 
The Tigers gained only 95 yards 
against the hard-hitting Raven squad. 

Cotfeyville made their first touch- 
down after an Ark City fumble on 
their own 30-yard line. The score read 
6-0 after the Red Ravens failed to 
convert the extra point. 

After failing to gain a first down, 
the Arks kicked. The Coffeyville 
eleven then proceeded to march 60 
yards in four plays to again strike 
pay dirt. This made the score 13-0. 

In the second quarter the Ravens 
capitalized on another Ark City fum- 
ble to gain seven more points 

The Speermen held Coffeyville 
scoreless during the third quarter, 
and were only yards away from scor- 
ing three different times. They failed 
to break the tough Raven line each

more touchdowns for 14 points before 
the fiual gun sounded. 

High water dalayed the Bengal 
squad with the team arriving in Cof- 
feyville only minutes before the game

college is probably safe from the sel- 
ective service for awhile. Dean K. R. 
Galle has received information that 
any student now enrolled in Juco will 
be deferred until the close of this 
school year.

Bids For New Juco 
Building Due October 16 

Bids on the proposed junior college 
building are to be in by October 16. 
It will then be known whether or not 
the building may be built right away. 

Every Student Asked to 
Serve in Concession Stand 

"Every student in junior college is 
requested to work in the concession 
stand at least once if not more times 
during his college years, Helen 
Ramsey, finance chairman of the stu- 
dent council, has announced. 

"Funds from the concession stand 
go to the student council, and student 
council funds go into equipping the 
club rooms and providing dan:e bands 
for all-school parties and general 
epuipment. It is one for all and all 
for one", Helen says. 


Chaplin Builds 
New Library 
Charging Desk 

A counter-height unit charging 
desk is now being made for the high 
school-junior college library and soon 
will be installed, Miss Ella Christen- 
son, librarian, has announced. The 
desk is to have a light oak finish and 
be U-shaped, with a top surface of 
green inlaid linoleum. 

So made that other units may be 
added to keep pace with the growth 
of the school, the desk's seven units 
include a knee space unit, two open 
shelf units, two vertical drawer unit-, 
and two closed shelf areas. 

L. A. Chaplin, industrial arts in- 
stuctor in junior high, is building the 
new equipment in the school shops. 

Relief for Traffic Congestion 
In Front of School 

The Board of Education has in- 
structed Dr. Jerry J. Vineyard, super- 
intendent of the schools, to talk with 
tho C ity Commissioners ab >ut parallel 
parking on Second Street in front of 
th? senior high building. Dr. Vineyard 
has talked with City Manager Wayne 
Lambert and will talk to the com- 
missioners in a short time. 

Ten More 
To Be Given 

Ten new scholarships are now being 
offered as the Spencer Ralston Post 
No. 1254 of the Veterans of Foreign 
Wars voted to give four $50 ones and 
the Quarterback Club found their 
funds sufficient to allow six $50 ath- 
letic scholarships. This makes eigh- 
teen $50 scholarships offered by five 
civic organizations and brings the to- 
tal to $900. 

Dean K. R. Galle reports that it 
will be about a month before all de- 
tails will be completed. But commit- 
tees hope to have these scholarships 
available to students now enrolled in 
the junnior college for first semester 

Organizations which were previous- 
ly announced as giving scholarships 
were Kiwanis, Lions, and Shelton- 
Beaty Post of the American Legion. 

Talent Wanted for 
Assembly Plays 

The speech department, under the 
direction of Miss Virginia Weisger- 
ber, plans to present a series of plays 
in the college assemblies during the 

First of this series is a "who dun 
it," "Murder at the Class Reunion" 
and is to be staged by six sophomore 

Miss Weisgerber has a number of 
plays and skits on file which she hopes 
to produce in subsequent assemblies, 
providing enough people are inter- 
ested and wish to take part. 

Since the first of the series is 
scheduled for the near future, all 
aspirants are urged to disclose their 
talents. No experience is required, 
Miss Weisgerber indicated. 

To help relieve the traffic conges- 
tion the space behind the shops and in 
the alley between Second and Third 
Streets, on the junior college site, is 
planned to be marked off for parking.

Should junior college students 
marry and continue their education ? 
The opinions on this subject differ 
greatly. Four students were asked to 
voice their views on the subject; two 
were all for it, but the other two 
thought it best to wait. How do you 
feel about it? Here's what these four 

Leighton Chaplin, married, — "I 
think it's a good deal. I'm making 
better grades now than I ever did be- 
fore. I don't have to make myself 
study, it's my job. This is just as much 
a job as if I were working up-town. 
It's something I want to do, but I'm 
not the only one affected, for there 
are several other people. I believe 
married students have a better atti- 
tude toward school than unmarried 
students. There's no conflict with aca- 
demis and social functions. 

"The only drawback that I see is 
the financial problem. If you can solve 
your financial problem it's a good 

Jean Edwards — "Married students 
make better students because they 
have settled down more. They spend 
less time in school social activities, 
work harder because they are working 
for a goal. They are much more seri- 
ious and try harder to make better 
grades. Married students go to college 
to learn instead of going for the soc- 
ial activities." 

On the other side of the question 
are these arguments. 

Joan Britton — "Couples should not 
marry while in school. Why? First, 
when a fellow marries he needs to 
take the responsibility of providing 
for the home andthis cannot be done 
successfully while going to school. 
Secondly, the wife needs to assume 
household responsibility." 

Dorothy Slaven— "Before I start

"I helped put Jive men through college today" 

babbling about something that I know 
little of, get me straight on one thin* 
— I love marriage, it's a great inslit- 
tution, but like all things there is a 
time and place for it. A junior college 
is neither the time nor the place. An 
18 to 20 year-old who is carrying fif- 
teen hours of college work is not 
ready to carry the responsibility of 
marriage. Marriage is a full time job. 
They say you can't live on love and 
it's all too true. If you've met the 
only one in your life and love that 
person enough you'll wait until you've 
finished your education and are ready 
to settle down and take on the respon- 
sibility of a home and a family. You've 
waited 19 years for her, or him, sur- 
ely you can wait a little while longer 
— to be safe instead of sorry." 

Students Sign Freedom Scrolls 

More than 100 juco students signed 
the Freedom Pledge scroll and do-

Tigers Bow 
40-2 in First 
Home Game. 

The Juco Tigers dropped their 
league opener, 42-2, to the Dodge 
City Conquistadors September 30, on 
their home field. 

Patee, big Conquistador back, car- 
ried over two touchdowns and passed 
for another. He was the Tigers' chief 
problem of the evening. 

The Tigers kicked off to Dodge 
and after a series of downs Patee 
crashed over. The conversion was no 
good and the score stood 6-0. 

The Tigers received and after the 
ball changed hands several times, Ed- 
munson, Dodge safety man, fumbled 
an Ark punt which rolled into end 
zone and was covered for an Ark City 
safety. Score 6-2. 

After a series of exchanges, Ed- 
munson took the ball 47 yards for the 
Conquistadors' third T.D. Troyer 
kicked the extra point and the score 
was 20-2. The Conquistadors took over 
from the Tigers and pushed to the 5- 
yard line as the half ended. 

The third quarter settled down to 
a punting attack as neither team 
countered. The Conquistadors scored 
freely in the last quarter, with Patee 
and Edmunson picking up 20 more 
points for the Conquistadors. The 
Conquistadors scored freely in the 
last quarter, with Patee and Edmun-

Neal Sparks 
Juco Backfield 

Bill Neal 

Bill Neal, spark of the Juco back- 
field, started playing with the Tigers 
early last season and has been carry- 
ing that ball regularly since then. 
Bill hails from Caldwell where he 
lettered two years in high school. 

Since Bill plays both offensive and 
defensive halfback, he spends the big- 
gest part of each game on the field. 
Although he is only 5 feet 8 inches 
tall and weighs 165 pounds, he is 
known to his team mates and Tiger 
fans for his love of the game which 
makes him one of the pluckiest play- 
ers that can be found. 


Tigers Lose 
To Grizzlies 


The Juco Tigers went down to the 
worst grid defeat in their history, 
last Friday falling to ElDorado 71 
to on the Grizzlies' home field 

The Tigers were unable to get eith- 
er their offense or defense rolling, and 
the Grizzlies kept piling up the 
score. The Grizzlies scored early in the 
game, pushing from their own 20- 
yard line with a series of short drives. 

In the third quarter the Tigers, in 
their deepest penetration of the game, 
drove to the Grizzlies 20-yard line

Band Uniforms 
To Be Purchased 

New band coats are to be purchased 
for the first time for junior college 
band members. Last year the pants 
were purchased and the rest of the uni- 
form is to be completed this year, ac- 
cording to the latest reports from 
Dean K. R. Galle. 

Due to many conflicting classes and 
many students participating in sports

small, but with the combined help of 
the students and the Juco faculty, the

Bids on the proposed junior college 
building were opened October 13. The 
cost will amount to approximately

city four years ago are only $350, 

The school board is now deciding 
whether it would be wiser to try to 
build the new school now or to wait 
for more settled conditions. It is hoped 
that a decision may be reached in a 
very short time, Supt. J. J. Vineyard

Dr. Bogue Is 
Optimistic for Jucos 

"Fifty years ago there were only a 
very few junior colleges in the 
United States, last year there were 
close to one-half million junior col- 
lege students," Dr. Bogue is executive 
secretary of the American Association 
of Junior Colleges. 

H e stressed the importance of 
junior colleges as an opportunity for 
so many students who would not have 
a chanceto go to a four year college. 
"Seventy-Five percent of the junior 
college students will never go on to 
senior colleges." 

While Dr. Bogue was in Arkansas 
City, he also spoke to the Chamber of 
Commerce, the CityTeachers Associa- 
tion, and at a dinner for the junior 
college teachers.

Tigers Face 



Tomorrow night the Tigers will go 
against Friends University, in the 
first of three non-divisional games. 
Last season this four-year college 
downed the Arks 19 to 13 at Wichita. 
Football was not revived at Friends 
until the close of the war which ac- 
counts for the fact that they have 
been so weak in the past. 

In another non-divisional game, the 
Bengals will travel to Iola Nov. 1 to 
meet the eastern-division club. The 
Reds are tied for last place in the 
eastern-division with no wins and two 
loses. The jucos smeared the Reds 21 
to last year. 

On Nov. 10, the Independence Pi- 
rates, traditional Bengal foes, will be 
Ark City guests as they face the 
Tigers in a non-league game. The 
Pirates sunk the Arks 21 to 13 last 
year. Sofar this year the Pirates have 
a three-win, one-loss record for east- 
ern division play. They are currently 
holding down second place. 

Pratt Beavers, 

Tigers End 

In 6-6 Deadlock 

For the second straight year, the 
Ark City Tigers and the Pratt Beavers 
have ended their gridiron battle in a 
6-6 deadlock. Fred Fitzgerald proved 
to be the big Ark City spark, while 
a confused official proved to be the 
Pratt main asset. Fitzgerald carried 
the ball for 91 yards of the 204 gain- 
ed by Ark City during the game. 

Both teams fought hard, but both 
failed to score during the first half. 
Pratt went over in the second quarter, 
but had the play called back because 
of unecessary roughness. 

Coming back in the third quarter, 
play was about equal until Meyer 
kicked to the Pratt 6-yard line, where 
Pratt's Rickords started his 94-yard 
run to pay dirt. There was a flag on 
the play because of a clipping penalty 
on Pratt. When the official who called 
the penalty became confused, he re- 
versed his decision and called the 
penalty on Ark City. The penalty was 
refused and Pratt lead 6-0. Piatt 
failed to convert the extra point. 

The Bengals started a hard fi"?ht 
which ended with Fitgerald carrying 
the ball into the end-zone and tieing 

Don Hollenback 
Backbone Of Line 

Don Hollenback 

Don Hollenback, right tackle of the 
juco forward wall, is well known to 
Arkansas City sports fans, for Don 
has long been a familiar figure on the 
football field, basketball court, and 
track field. This is Don's second year 
with the Tigers and he has partici- 
pated in practically every grid game.

Broncs Win 
Over Arks by 
37-13 Count 

The Juco Tigers went down 37 to 
13 before the onslought of Garden 
City, Oct. 20, on the Bronc Busters' 
home field. 

Myer kicked off to Garden, and on 
the fourth play later, the Broncs 
pushed over their first T.D. Bryson 
booted the extra point and Garden led 
7 to 0. 

Two more Garden City drives netted 
first period scores, one on a 49-yard 
romp. The second quarter was score- 
less, a goal-line stand saving the Arks 
as the half ended. 

A 56-yard run and an Ark fumble 
gave the Broncs their second half 

The Tigers moved to two secend 
half counters, one by Myers, Neal, 
Buel Beck, and Fitzgerald in five and 
ten yard rushes, with Beck going over, 
and the other on a series of passes 
with Myer earring off tackle for the 
counter. Both conversions failed.

the coronation. Other members of the 
committee are Sue Stacy, Betty Webb, 
and Carrie Webb. 

Any junior college girl will be eli- 
gible, sophomore or freshman. There 
will be five top freshmen and five 
top sophomores on the final ballot. 

The queen will be crowned Dec- 
ember 8 when the first home confer- 
ence ball game will be played with 
Hutchinson. The queen will have two 
attendents. A social will be held after 
the game in honor of the queen.

New Juco 
Building by 
Nov. 1, 1951 

By November 1, 1951, the portion of 
the new junior college will be finished, 
according to Dr. Jerry J. Vineyard 
supt. of schools. This portion will 
include approximately a dozen class 
rooms and laboratories for college 
academic and trade work. 

Three contracts for the construct- 
ion of the building have been signed. 
It is now hoped that the ground 
breaking will be started around the 
first of December, if weather condi- 
tions are favorable. 

The general contractor is D.C. Bass 
and Sons of Enid, Oklahoma. The 
other two contracts, heating and 
plumbing and electrical, have gone 
to local firms, the Fouts 1 lumbing and 
Teter Electric Co. 

Plans Started 
For Christmas 

Dancing in the Auditorium-Gym- 
nasium to the music of Herb Jimmer- 
son's swing band will be the feature 
of the semi-formal Christmas dance 
December 21. 

This dance is for the students and 
all alumni, including anyone who has 
attended the local college in the past 
years, whether a juco graduate or not. 

A theme for the dance has not yet 
been decided upon and Helen Scamme- 
horn chairman of the social committee 
has asked the students to give any 
ideas they have for a theme to her. 

All junior college classes will be 
dismissed two days for the Thanks- 
giving holidays, November 23 and 24. 

Application Blanks 
For Scholarships 
To Be Filled Out 

Any student interested in obtaining 
one of the ten offered $50 scholarships, 
is asked to fill out an application 
blank in the office. 

The students receiving the scholar- 
ships will be considered on these 
points: need, character, scholarship, 
leadership, and contribution to school. 
Each one need not fill all the require- 
ments, but all will be taken into con- 
sideration, Dean K. R. Galle stated. 

There are some students who are 
ineligible for the scholarships. This 
includes anyone already receiving 
money for his books and fees as those 
on G. I. Bill of Rights. Also students 
who are attending junior college only 
part time or who have exceedingly 
low scholastic standing are not quali- 
fied to receive a scholarship. 

The scholarships are offered by 
these civic organizations, Kiwanis, 
Lions, American Legion, and Veterans 
of Foreign Wars.

The long awaited juj.iiorcollege 
building is about to be started. The 
promise that this portion will be 
finished by November 1, 1951, is the 
most encouraging report given thus 

This means that the freshmen of 
this year will probably be able to use 
it at least for the second semester 
next year. Then of course, it will be 
available for the classes following. 

All our thanks go to the school 
board members for taking this initial 


A local civic organization has of- 
fered to buy coats to complete the 
junior college band uniforms. It's 
grand to think that an outside group 
as this organization would take an 
interest and be so generous, as it is 
a great expense. 

Junior college students do not seem 
to have the spirit to support a band. 
We have more than thirty students 
who can play band instruments. So 
far no more than seven or eight will 
show up to play at pep assemblies or 
at games. The rest are high school or 
junior high band members. 

Some are on the teams, but there 
are enough others to make up for 
these few. All could play for pep as- 

At the last assembly eight members 
played. The rest were in the audience 
or had skipped. Someone said he had 
forgotten about it, others just laughed 
it off. 

The TAC has talked to these stu- 
dents, appealed to them. No results. 
All say they are too busy, they work 
as well as attend school or give some 
other reason. 

There are some girls who will play 
if the others will, but each does not 
want to be the "only one to play." 

What's wrong with us? Is it lack 
of school spirit, stubborness, or do wo

Juco Assembly 

Mrs. Induk Pahk, a native of Kor-

Kansas Institute of International Re- 
lations, addressed the junior college 
assembly, November 6. 

Mrs. Pahk was introduced by Mr. 
Gephardt, executive secretary of the 
institute and associated with Friends 
University of Wichita. 

Mrs. Pahk depicted the Korean peo- 
ple as the elite of the Orient, a versa- 
tile, intelligent, peace loving nation 
whose customs embrace the best 
points of the Chinese and Japanese 

The years of oppression under the 
monarchical and Japanese govern- 
ments and their contribution to the 
present conflict were related and the 
fact that the Confucian philosophy is 
retrogressive in nature has deprived 
the people of their political aggres- 
siveness, as well as economic secur- 

Korea is of strategic value to Japan 
because of its proximity to China, 
its tillable land and resources, and 
valuable Russia because it has open 
all weather ports.

Tigers Play 
Hutch in 
Last Game 

The Tigers will travel to Hutchinson 
tomorrow night where they will meet 
the Hutchinson Blue Dragons in thier 
last game of the season. Hutchinson is 
holding down second place in the 
western division, their only loss this 
season being to the strong ElDorado 

Last season the Blue Dragons 
handed the Tigers a 42 to defeat on 
Curry Field. 

El Dorado will play Garden City 
who is tied with Hutchinson for second 
place, for the western division champ- 
ionship. Should El Dorado lose to Gar- 
den City and Hutchinson beat the 
Tigers there would be a three way tie 
for first place in the western division. 
However, El Dorado has only to beat 
Garden to take home the western 
division championship and be hosts 
for the East-West game. 

Tigers in 12-12 
Tie with Iola 

The Tigers fought to a 12 to 12 tie 
with the Iola Red Devils, November 1, 
in a non- league tilt. 

After a scoreless first quarter, the 
Tiger took the ball on their own 31- 
yardline and drove to the Iola one- 
yard line where they fumbled. Iola re- 
covered but tried a pass, which Ells- 
worth Cooper intercepted and ran over 
for the first score. The Bengals failed 
to convert and the score was 6 to 0. 

Iola then started a 40-yard drive 
which ended in pay dirt several plays 
later. The Red Devils failed to con- 
vert and the score was tied 6-6. 

The Arks continued to drive through 
the Red Devil line until Iola inter- 
cepted a pass and went the full dis- 
tance to lead the Arks 12 to 6. 

Both teams faild to score in the 
third quarter and it ended with the 
Tigers on the Iola 6-yard line. 

The Tigers tried a pass which was 
intercepted by Iola and the Tiger 
scoring chance was halted. 

After recovering a Red Devil fumble 
on the Ark City 28, Neal tossed a long 
pass to Bob Beck who went all the way 
to tie the score 12 to 12. 

The Red Devils failed to score in 
the few minutes remaining in the

Fred Fitzgerald, sturdy Tiger back, 
came to Ark City from Gushing last 
year, but was ineligible for one sem-

Fitzgerald, a sophomore, is 5 feet 
10 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds. 
He hits the line hard and barrels his 
way through for Tiger yardage. 
He has definitely been an asset and in 
the Pratt game carried the ball for 
almost half of the Tiger gains.

men, Jim Johnston, John Ogren, Allen

Pirates Edge 
Bengals By 
One Point 

The Independence Pirates edged 
out the Tigers 7 to 6 in the Bengals 
last home game. The Pirates, who are 
in second place in the eastern division, 
found three of their goal attempts 
stopped by the hard hitting Tiger 

After the kickoff, the Pirates moved 
the ball from their own 25 yard line 
to the Bengal 17 on a series of line 
plays. The Tigers stopped their drive 
and took over possession of the ball. 

The Arks moved the ball to the 
Independence 36 yard line when 
Meyers faded to pass. Finding no 
receiver, he decided to run and was 
able to elude tacklers and go all the 
way. The kick was blocked making the 
score 6-0. 

Late in the second quarter tihe 
Pirates started moving from the 
Bengal 25 yard line. The score came 
on a fumble, accidental kick, and 
Pirate recovery in the end zone. The 
kick was good and the Pirates led 7 
to 6. 

In the second half, the Pirates kept 
moving, but each charge was stopped 
by the hard Tiger defensive squad 
before thev could score. 

Friends Swamp 
Bengals 65 to 7 

Friends University, a four-year col- 
lege, swamped the Ark City Tigers 
65 to 7 at Curry Field, Oct. 27. Weight 
and experience of the older squad wis 
to much for the lighter Ark City 

Friends tallied four times in the 
first quarter for 26 points. Hudgins 
made the first two touchdowns, while 
Caslcy and Wamsley ran the other 
two over. Taylor kicked two extra 
points while missing two. 

In th second quarter Friend? scored 
20 more points on three touchdowns 
and two conversions. The touchdowns 
were made by Cline, Harris, and Sik. 

The Tigers momentarily halted the 
Quaker onslaught and held the Quak- 
ers to 6 points in the third quarter. 
That came on a pass Piggott to Yazel. 

In the last quarter Friends mad^ 
two more touchdowns on passes from 
Pigeott to Stowe to bring their lead 
to 65 to 0. 

The Tigers then tallied their only 
score on a pass from Meyer to Bob 
Beck. A pass from Meyer to Fitz- 
gerald made the extra point.

are interested the bus will be used 
to take students to the Independence

on their various functions. These stu- 
dents have a right to feel proud of 
what they have done and as the year 
progresses and more students take 
part in the productions, they too will 
be able to have a sense of pride in 
their accomplishment. 

To all these students who have will- 
ingly appeared in student programs, 
Tiger Tales say "thank you". It isn't 
much of a recognition, but the staff 
does give you its thanks for giving 
us enjoyable, interesting programs. 

We hope other willing workers join 
this group and continue the work. 

School Reorganization Plan 
Shown at Theater 

Students of education, teachers, and 
others interested in school develop- 
ment may be interested in a special 
film to appear soon at our Arkansas 
City theater. 

William Welton, manager of the 
Burford and Star Theaters, has sec- 
ured a picture on a sc.iool reorgani- 
zation plan as it was handled in a l 
Illinois community. This picture will 
run as a short, along with regular pro- 
gram at the Burford, December 14, 
15, and 16, according to Supt. Jerry 
J. Vineyard. 

The picture shown in advance on 
November 27 at the Star Theater for 
parents and teachers. It was obtained 
at the request of Dr. Vineyard. 

New activity tickets are to be ob- 
tained at the junior college office. 
These new tickets will be used for 
basketball games until January 20, 
1951. The first acthity tickets given 
out in September are now valid. 


Bet nvce Thomac, j.c. '49, senior at 
KSAC at Manhattan, and Rodney Wil- 
son, j.c. '48, senior at Emporia State 
Teachers College, were both on deco- 
rating committees which won first 
places in decorations for their school's 
homecoming celebrations. Thomas is 
resident of Waltheir Hall and Wilson 
of Phi Delta Chi, a fraternity. 

P. M. Johnson had a red face the 
other day. It seems he bragged about 
Jim Cox being the only one in his class 
who had not been absent this year. 
The next three days Jim was out of 
school due to illness. 

Mr. Maag: I sure wish prohibition 
was back because I shudder and shiver 
everytime I get out on the highway. 

Voice in the back: You should do 
your drinking at home. 

An intellectual mouse in Miss Weis- 
gerber's room has been keeping the 
class on its toes by playing peek-a-boo 
around the bookcase. 

Junior college freshman, Mrs. Lucy 
Hollenbeak is very proud of having 
accomplished something not many juco 
students have yet managed. She has 
acquired a new grandaugter by the 
name of Carla Jean Rogers. 

Since Bill Morris has received his 
call to the air force, the couch by the 
Dr. Pepper machine in the club rooms 
will look vacant, notes the office cynic. 


In chorus Mr. Hinchee remarked 
that nothing gave anyone such a lost 
feeling as giving a signal to begin 
something, yet have nothing happen. 

"Now you know how our quarter- 
back feels," Roger Warren was heard 

to say. 


Our hero, Miley Crabtree, rescued 
the charming Elaine Probst "the lily 
maid of the telephone company" by 
capturing a scorpion which was mak- 
ing evil eyes at her in the hall the 
other day.

Library Has 
New Desk 

The new library charging desk has 
been installed in the library. This 
desk is made of oak, finished in its 
natural color with green inlaid linol- 
eum top. The desk is twelve and a 
half feet long and two and a fourth 
feet wide. 

"Now the library will be able to 
give better service and the desk makes 
the library more attractive," Miss 
Ella Christenson, librarian, stated. 

This new desk, built by junior high 
woodworking instructor, Laurence 
Chaplin, was installed Monday, Nov- 
ember 27. 

There is a slot in one end of the 
desk where books are returned. The 
books then drop to a large drawer in 
the bottom of the desk. At the front 
of the desk is another slot where 
cards from the books checked out are 
dropped. These go into a box in an- 
other drawer. 

On one corner of the desk is an ex- 
hibit case. There is now much storage 
for various library supplies. The hard- 
ware on the desk is brass and all the 
shelves in the desk are adjustable. 

Two more sections are under con- 
struction and will be added sometime 
after the Christmas holidays. These 
sections are five feet wide and will 
extend from the desk to the wall on 
each side of the desk. There will be 
an aisle on either side of the desk for 
students to obtain books on the back- 

"By the addition of this new desk 
the whole atmosphere of the library 
has been improved," one student re- 
mark, d. 

Band Uniforms 
Discusse With 
VFW Members 

The juco band and faculty advisors 
met with representatives of the local 
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post to dis- 
cuss the possibility of the VFW's 
financing coats for the junior college 

Should the VFW decide to back this 
organization, they would purchase uni- 
forms and sponsor out-of-town trips. 
An expense-paid to the organization's 
state convention and the possibility of 
attending the national convention at 
New York were also cited.

New Club Room 
Rules Discussed; 
To Sell Pencils 

New rules and regulations for the 
club rooms were discussed at the stu- 
dent council meeting November 20. 
The idea of checking out ping pong 
balls and paddles and decks of cards 
was brought up and it was decided to 
see if dependable students could take 
charge of the job every hour of the 
school week. 

A new piece of furniture is to be 
added to the club room. This is a 
davenport, used in the senior high 
play, and the gift of the Parman h ur- 
niture Co. 

The TAC's report on the queen was 
okayed. The TAC also reported that 
basketball schedule pencils are now 
being sold and in two weeks they hope 
to have mechanical pencils to sell. 

These mechanical pencils are black 
and orange, have a tiger pictured on 
one end and the enscription "Arkansas 
City Junior College Tigers." They will 
cost one dollar.

Tigers Play- 
Three Games, 
One Away 

Make way for basketball. Here 
comes the new -sports season. 

The? Tigers will face the Independ- 
ence Pirates, the Hutchinson Blue 
Dragons, and the Parson Cardinals 
during the next two weeks. The Hutch 
game .will be the only division game 
and will be the Ark's first conference 
game this season. One game with St. 
Johns is already on the books. 

The Independence game will be 
played Dec. 5 and will be the first 
home game for the Tigers. Last season 
the Bengals beat the Pirates 60 to 50 
and 37 to 36. 

On Dec. 8, the Tigers will take on 
Hutchinson in the aud-gym. The Blue 
Dragons are reported to have their 
1950 first string back this year and 
should have a very strong club. The 
Tigers lost both games to them last 
season, 51 to 47 and 68 to 45. 

The Tigers' fourth game of the sea- 
son will l)e against Parsons Dec. 11 
at Parsons. The Tigers smothered the 
Cardinals in both games last season, 
50 to 42 and 41 to 35. 

Garden City Cops 
East- West Game 

A field goal, kicked by Garden City's 
Verlyn Bryson was enough to give 
Garden City a 10 to 9 edge over 
Coffeyville in the East-West playoff 
last Saturday. The field goal was tht 
first ever to have been kicked by a 
Garden City juco team. 

Both teams took home 35 per cent 
of the net gate receipts while the 
KPJCA received the other 30 per cent. 
The win over Coffeyville will probably 
insure an invitation for Garden City 
to play at either Tyler, Tex., or Mon- 
roe, La. 

Next year's game, to determine the 
Kansas junior college football champs, 
will be played on the field of the 
winner of the eastern division. 

harden City To Play 
In Junior Sugar Bowl 

Garden City Junior College, Kansas 
junior college football champs, has 
accepted an invitation to play in the 
Junior Sugar Bowl at Monroe, La., 
Dec. 8, against Del Mar Junior Col- 
lege of Corpus Christi, Texas.

The Dragons continued their scor- 
ing spree with four touchdowns in the 
third quarter. Stoppel, Brock, John- 
son, and Clothier made the TDs while 
Taylor made two conversions good. 

In the final quarter Hutch tallied 
three more touchdowns before the 
final gun. Hubbell, Hess, and Perkins 
carried the ball over and Taylor made 
the conversions good.

Dear Santa— 

Since Em sort of an unofficial post- 
around Juco here, I picked up some 
letters the other day and they were 
all to you from some of the students 
requesting things for Christmas. 

Anna Lee Hughett wants to know 
if you can get her an elecrtic blanket 
with a portable battery for classes, 
or if you don't have one of those she 
says there other substitutes you could 
get to keep her warm. 

All Winston Mennish and Don Lain- 
gor want for Christmas are Cadillac 
convertibles. Winston wants an all 
black one, while Don wants chartreuse 
with a black top plus the gal in the 

Dot Slaven wants to know if you 
can reach down in your bag and bring- 
up a 6 foot boy for her. Sue Stacy 
would like an "A" in Western Civ, 
while Miss Virginia Weisgerber is 
sure you can get her a fur coat be- 
cause she has been a good girl this 

A term paper completely w: itten 
is wanted by Phyllis Fox and all the 
rest of the students who have to write 
them. Fred Menefee wants a boat 
headed anywhere but for Korea and 
Carl Ousley wants a deferment. 

Curtis Huddle doesn't want any- 
thing but some heat in the club rooms 
so he can play black-jack in comfort, 
and Leroy Davis wants a deck of 
marked cards to play with in the club 
rooms when they get warm. 

Thanks Santa, for reading this, and 
I know you'll get everything every- 
body wants. 

Merry Christmas, 
P.S. Could you manage a little bottle 
of hadocol for me to brighten up my 
nose ? 

Mrs. La Chapelle: All of you look in 
the mirror before you come to school. 
You know what you look like. 

Chritine Laingor: What a shocking 

Most of he boys in juco seem to feel 
the same way as Julio Martinez. When 
asked what he was going to do, Julio 
remarked, "In the army before long." 

Have you noticed all the people 
around school scratching, especially 
after the sophomore picnic ? It could- 
n't be, but it is, because of poison ivy. 
Among those itching are Mildred Mars 
and Paul Johnson. 

Mr. Day: After hearing that talk 
today by Mrs. La Chapelle, I'm almost 
afraid to say anything. 

Joe Fife What's that? Can't hear 

Those boys who have joined the 
services in the past few weeks are 
Charles Livergood and Bill Morris, 
both to the air corps, and Wayni 
Parker, the navy. 

The Juco secretary, Catherine Sto- 
"ei, was doing all right at the sopho- 
-iiore picnic. She was being chased by 
chasing some of the sophomore boys 
out there. And to think she could have 
been a chaperon! But they do love to 
tease her. 

Have you noticed the number of 
junior college students reading first 
and second grade books ? What's the 
matter, can't our students read ? 

Yes, they can read, but some are 
now reading books from the first to 
sixth grade level. These books are be- 
ing carried about and read by the stu- 
dents enrolled in children's literature. 
Every few days the ten in this class 
invade the children's department at 
the public library in search of good 
books for first or sixth graders, espe- 

This group, under Miss Myra Har- 
dy's supervision, are making a biblio- 
graphy of the books they read or 
others read and these discussed in 
class, so when they teach or help chil- 
dren in their home, they will be able 
to recommend good books for this le- 

So far many have discovered favor- 
ite books read and reread when they 
were in grade school. Also some of the 
books have proved most entertaining 
and educational for even this "so- 
phisticated" age. The group has rea- 
lized how children's books have 
changed, for the better, in the last 
few years, since they were in grade

Students Present 
Christmas Play for 
Scholarship Donors 

The Junior College Christmas as- 
sembly will be held on Wednesday, De- 
cember 20. 

Featured in this assembly will be a 
play entitled "Blessed are They", a 
dr. ma directed by Miss Weisgerber. 

"This play is presented as a gift 
to all the local organizations who 
awarded scholarships to juco stu- 
dents," Miss Virginia Weisgerbsr, di- 
rector, pointed out. 

Special invitations are being pre- 
pared for these organizations. 

The play "Blessed are They" is a 
home situation, and while not parti- 
cularly of a religious is in keeping 
with the Christmas season. 

The cast of the play includes Joan 
Britton, Mother; Joe Cary, Father; 
Charley Miller, Stranger; and Joe 
Hearne, Neighbor. 

"Danny Spangler, the stage mana- 
ger also deserves a vote of confidence 
as his work is essential to the proper 
staging of the production", Miss Weis- 
gerber said. 

Student friends and families are 
cardially invited to attend.

Efforts to preserve the "neighbor- 
hood" nature of junior college football 
have resulted in drastic action by 
hood" nature of junior college football 
recruiting and eliminate' "big time" 

Representatives of the twelve Jun- 
ior colleges of the Kansas Public Jun- 
ior College Association met in El 
Dorado N/ov. 8, to revise football 
eligibility rules. The revisions were 
aimed toward "unusually strong 
teams, such as Coffeyville and Hutch- 
inson," states Dean K. R. Galle. 

The KPJCA ruled hat there shall 
be no football practice before Sept. 1, 
thus eliminating spring practice. 

They also ruled that the season will 
close the Saturday after Thanksgiving 
with the East-West playoff, sponsored 
by the KPJCA. 

It was agreed upon that no team 
shall participate in any "bowl" game 
and no team is to schedule games 
with schools beyond a 350 mile radius. 
Contracts, already signed will be 
honored, however. 

Traveling squads will be limited to 
30 players and uniforms. Students 
transfering from one school to another 
must attend 18 weeks, the equivilent 
of one semester, before they are eli- 
gible for competition in any organized 

The Kansas Public Junior College 
Association has agreed to hold another 
meeting in February to futher re- 
visions on this matter of chaining 
down the "unusually strong teams".

Indy Pirates 

The junior college Tigers dropped 
the Hutchinson Blue Dragons 59 to 54 
on the Tigers home court Dec. 8. The 
Tigers started with their usual slow 
unimpressive game, but, bounced back 
to outscore the Dragons in a hard 
fought scramble. 

The Bengals fought back hard to 
overcome an early 10 to 3 deficit, with 
Chaplin and Gilmore collecting three 
points for the locals. 

The Tigers traded shot for shot with 
the Dragons until a charity toss put 
the Bengals out in frort for the first 
time in the game. The half ended with 
Hutch hitting a flury of shots, putting 
them out in front 29-28. 

The Tigers hit hard as the second 
half opened the score to 36-29 before 
the Dragons collected three straight 
buckets to put them back in the game. 

During the final minutes of the 
game, the visitors hit to knot the score 
53-54, but the Speermen collected six 
straight points as the time ran out. 

The Bengal basketeers got their first 
win of the season, Dec. 5, by downing 
Independence 42 to 32. The Tigers 
never lost the lead after jumping 
ahead in the first minutes of the gam". 
It was the initial home contest, and 
the second game of the season. 

The Pirates ran the score to 6-3 
after play opened, only to see their 
lead fade as Chaplin a"d Gilmore hit 
field goals. The Arks then poured 19 
points through the hoop while Inde- 
pendence collected one charity. The 
quarter ended with the score 16 to 7. 

Coming back in the second quarter, 
The Pirates dumped in 6 points while 
the score to 22-13. The half ended with 
the score 24 to 17, Tigers fa^cr. 

Play was even in the third quarter 
with each team scoring 8 points to 
make the score 32-25. Scoring in th? 
final stanza was slow as the Bengals 
picked up 10 more points while the? 
Pirates scored only 7.

sent in to Washington, D.C. last year 
also. The blotter Bud Childers de- 
signed contained an original puota,iibn.

Testing-Time Is 
Here Again For Jucc 

"I'll never make it." "I'll flunk out 
the first one I take." "Well, what do 
you think about me?" 

In case you haven't recognized these 
statements you are not worried about 
semester exams. 

Next week the race for life or death 
is on. Most of the students are getting 
prepared for the week of horror. They 
are thinking about studying for the 
tests and some of them are getting 
their parents prepared for the worst. 

In the minds of some, the week of 
ordeal will be something to try their 
skill and an endurance test. After next 
week holding one's breath until the 
gi-ades are issued. Most of the stu- 
dents would like to receive good 
grades but there are those who know 
they won't so if they get C's they 
will feel lucky. 

New Radio Is Delivered, 
Initiated with Carols 

The phonograph-radio combination 
arrived in time to be a Christmas pre- 
sent to the junior college. It arrived 
the day before the Christmas vacation 
and was immediately put to work 
playing Christmas carols. 

Student Council President Leighton 
Chaplin says that if extreme care is 
taken with the set it will last much 
longer and be enjoyed by everyone. 

The Spanish Club's Christmas party 
was at Caroline Hinsey's home. The 
program chairman was Joan Britton. 

Mrs. Leta Rundell told of Christmas 
customs in Spain, Puerto Rico, and 
Mexico. Christmas carols were sung 
accompanied by Roger Warren, play- 
ing an harmonica; Henrietta Olvera 
sang in Spanish, "You Belong to My 
Heart"; and Caroline Hinsey and Mrs. 
Ira Hinsey played two piano duets. 

Have you noticed the new paint on 
the steps to the club rooms ? Looks as 
though someone worked during the 
Christmas holidays. This was done by 
the janitors who also waxed the floors 
on the halls and offices, and did re- 
pair jobs in several of the classrooms. 

While examining an article in a 
recent magazine in advanced comp- 
osition, Jim Cox remarked that it was 
not sprinkled with adjectives, but salt 
and peppered. 

Julia Ann: Boy, I gained five pounds 
over the vacation. 

Miss Armstrong: If you weighed at 
the bank you couldn't take off your 
clothes to really see how much you 

Julia Ann: Oh, but I did. (She 
meant she took off her coat.) 

Little Dan Cupid has really been 
busy with that little bow and arrow of 
his. "Besides helping two girls (and two 
boys) get married he has also helped 
four girls snag their men by getting 
engagement rings. 

The girls with the sparklers are 
Patsy Smith, Naomi Clark, Dolores 
Morton, and Betty Owens. If any of 
the Juco gals want information on 
"how to catch your man" they may 
get in touch with any of these girls, 
who will be glad to give advice as to 
how to get hold of Dan Cupid. 

Buel Beck: What did you do with 
your car now that you're going into 
the air corps? 

Joe Fife: I gave it to my sister.

Christmas Dance 
Attended by Many 
Alumni, Students 

Approximately 300 alumni and stu- 
dents were present at the Juco-Alumni 
Christmas Dance, December 21, in the 
auditorium-gymnasium. Herb Jimmer- 
son's orchestra furnished the music 
for the dancing. 

The theme was Silver Bells and in 
the center of the dance floor was hung 
a large papier-mache, silver-colored 
bell. Blue and white crepe paper and 
silver stars were used to decorate the 
room and three decorated Christmas 
trees aided in the Christmas feeling. 

Master of ceremonies for the pro- 
gram was Bob Darrough. Bonnie Lord 
and Julia Ann Woodard sang a duet, 
"Winter Wonderland"; Rex Shifflet 
played "White Christmas" on his cor- 
net; Jasper DeVore, j.c. '42, had a 
ventriloquist act; Douglas Mc Call, j.c. 
'47, sang two novelty numbers; and to 
conclude the program, Esther Brown 
and Pete Kahkr danced to "Silver 

Thirty-seven alumni signed the 
guest book. The first graduating class 
of 1924 was represented as well as the 
most recent class, 1950. 

The social committee was in charge 
of the dance with Helen Scammehorn, 
chairman. The committee was aided in 
decorating the auditorium by volun- 
teers from the student body and facul- 

Bright Colored Pencils 
Sold by TAC 

The TAC is now selling mechanical 
pencils advertising the junior college. 
These pencils are orange and black 
with the name of the school, the city, 
and "Tigers" on them. Also there is a 
complete picture of a tiger. The pencil 
has an individual number so if one is 
lost or mixed up, it may be reclaimed. 
The pencils may be purchased in the 
office for one dollar. 

Card Received from Dr. Sutton 

Jack Pfisterer has received a Christ- 
mas card and personal note from Dr. 
Willis A. Sutton. At the first of the 
year, when Dr. Sutton spoke to the 
juco assembly, he wandered into Miss 
Virginia Weisgerber's room looking 
for the office. She asked Jack to take 
Dr. Sutton down to Mr. Galle's office. 

In Spanish class: 

Willard Wright: How I hate those 
"rational" verbs. 

Tiger Action Club 
Does Decorating 

The junior college TAC has been 
getting plenty of practice in decorat- 
ing lately. Their first experience was 
in decorating at the VFW memorial 
building for the football banquet Dec- 
ember 12. Dorothy Slaven and her 
committee of Esther Brown and Emma 
Lou Waters with the aid of the TAC 
members who were able to help did 
the job. 

For the Christmas decorations in 
the hall everyone was invited to help 
but TAC members did the job. 

John Ogren helped the girls by add- 
ing his height and reach to the appli- 
ance of icicles to the tops of the trees. 

Helen Ramsey, TAC president states 
that she feels the club can take on any 
job of decorating offered it. 

Mezt Ml. Cd 

A very cautious gentleman is Julio 
Martinez, Mr. Ed for this issue. 

Martinez is 21 years old, 5 feet 6 
inches in height, and weighs 145 lbs. 
He is a member of the sophomore 
class and a musician. He was a tym- 
pani player in the high school band 
and plays trombone in the juco band. 

He has no hobby and no definite 
plans for the future. He likes long 
sleeping hours, eating, and hunting. 

His pet peeves are those tyrannical 
teachers who won't let him sleep in 
class, and, now that the draft board 
is breathing down his neck, those 
"guys who keep telling me that I'm 
due for the army." 


Meet Mid* Go-ed 

Miss Co-ed for this issu° is a girl 
(naturally) by the name of Sue Stacy. 
This blond haired, blue-eyed gal is a 
freshman who plans to become a 
"school marm." 

To eat, sleep, breathe, sew, dance, 
go to shows, and attend county and 
state fairs are Sue's ideas of great 
living. Blue is a color Sue often wears 
and so becomes her favorite color. 

Sue's ideal man has blue eyes like 
Van Johnson, is 6' 1" like Peter Law- 
ford, has a crew cut like Howard Duff, 
and has a personality like Clark Gable. 
Sue has won many honors in the 
4-H field. This year she received first 

Dean Suggests 
Short Courses for 
Eccei Enlistees 

An informal meeting of all those 
students "eligible" for entry into the 
service was held Friday, December 22, 
by Dean K. R. Galle. 

At this meeting the subject un- 
der discussion was the value of ed- 
ucation in reference to military or 
naval service. 

A plan was suggested whereby 
during the second semester a number 
of eight or nine week courses which 
would enhance the chance of advan- 
cement, give college credit, and cause 
less loss of educational time would 
be instituted. 

"As things are at present," Dean 
Galle told the men, "if you are a 
member of the National Guard and 
it is mobilized, you must go, but if 
you are a member of the reserve the 
postponement of your active duty is 
in the hands of your commanding off- 
icer. A person called up through se- 
lective service will, if doing satis- 
factory work, be allowed to finish the 
school year." 

Holiday Weddings 
Of Juco Students 

Two of the weddings during the holi- 
days involved three junior college 

Miss Norma Sylvia Faurot, daugh- 
ter of Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Shields of 
Circle Drive, and Buel Beck of 115 
South "B" Street, were united in mar- 
riage in a double ring ceremony Dec- 
ember 30. The vows were read in the 
First Methodist Church in Fayette- 
villf. Arkansas. 

Mrs. Beck was graduated from the 
Arkansas City high school in 1949. 
Beck is a sophomore in junior college. 

Miss Belva Tipton, daughter of Mr. 
and Mrs. Foster Tipton, 220 South 
Fourth Street, and Bob Gardner, son 
of Mr. and Mre. James F. Gardner, 
916 North Fourth Street, were married 
Christmas night, December 25, at the 
home of the bride. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Gardner are en-

Tigers Play 
Four Game 

The Tigers have four games sche- 
duled for the next two weeks, three 
of them will be divisional. 

First on tap will be a divisional go 
with Hutchinson at Hutch Thursday 
night. The Tigers wjll be out to con- 
firm a 59-54 win over the Dragons 
earlier this season. ' The Dragons 
have their first string back and were 
no pushover here on the Tiger home 
court. -. 

The Bengals will play host to the 
Dodge City Canqs, Jan. 19 in another 
divisional game. The Tigers and the 
Conqs split their games last season 
53-35 and 55-68. 

On Jan. 20, the Arks will face the 
Garden 1 City Bronc Busters in the 
second game of a week-end double 
header. The Broncs won both games 
last season, 61-49 and 41-34, but are 
reported to have lost nine out of ten 
of their first ten men this season. 

The Tigers will journey to Coffey- 
ville where they will face the Coffey- 
ville Red Ravens in a non-league 
game. The Bengals will try to break 
a jinx whic^h has failed to let them win 
a game on the Coffeyville court the 
past several seasons, although they 
have beaten the Ravens on the Ark 
City coui't each time. 

Tigers Win Third 
Straight Game 

The Bengals racked up their third 
straight win of the season, Dec. 15, 
as they beat Coffeyville 40 to 33. The 
Tigers played a slow and ragged game 
until the final period when they final- 
ly caught on fire and took command 
of the game. 

The Red Ravens lost the game at 
the free throw line as they made only 
9 of their 34 tries. The Jucos picked 
up 12 points out of 16 tries. Jim John- 
son was high point man with 15

Juco-Alumni Game 

Twenty former high school grads 
saw action Dee. 23,. but failed to rack 
up enough points to beat the Tigers 
in the Quartrback Club's first annual 
Juco-Alumni basketball game. The 
final score was 47 to 35. 

Although the Tigers faced a lot of 
taLent, the cool precision in shooting 
and teamwork, that comes only from 
weeks of practice together, more than 
made up the difference. 

The Tigers jumped into an early 
lead "and were never seriously threat- 
ened throughout the game. 

High point men for the evening 
were Allen Chaplin with 17 points, BL1 
Lee, with 9 Counters, and Larry John- 
son of the Alumni with 8 points. 

Those seeing action for the alumni 
include: Warren Thomas, Ed Drehmer, 
Jack Mitchell, Howard Engleman, 
Dick Hatfield, Malcom Smith, Jack 
Pinion, Joe Berry, Bill Bartholomew, 
Wayne Eustice, Earl Grinnell, Bill 
Parman, Lyle Rutter, Rod Wilson, Bill

and Bud Chaplin. 


Tigers Tromp 

58 to 46 

With the aid of Allen Chaplin's 22 
points, the Tigers scored their second 
straight league victory Jan. 2, by de- 
feating the El Dorado Grizzlies 68 to 
46. The win not only kept their leagu3 
record perfect, but also made their 
fifth win in as many starts on th ! 
home courts. 

The Tigers started the scoring then 
jumped into a 5-2 lead after gettin j 
off to a slow start. The score ran to 
11-7 when El Dorado countered with 
four points to tie the score. Three 
points put the Arks out in front a- 
gain as the quarter ended. 

Getting hot, the jucos stretched 
their lead to ten points as the score 
went to 22-12. The Tigers hit 11 nnro 
points before the half ended while 
the Grizzlies countered with only 8. 
This put the Arks out in front 33-20. 

The Grizzlies started a third period 
rally and cut the Bengals lead to 6 
points before the Tigers started hit- 
ting again. The quarter ended with the 
Speermen holding a 9 point lead, with 
the score 44-35. 

Tigers in 
Third League 

The Tigers maintained the un- 
disputed first place last Friday 
night by trimming the Pratt Beavers 
58-54 as they chalked up their third 
league victory. Allen Chaplin poured 
24 points through the hoop as he set 
the scoring pace for the evening. 

After picking up a 6-4 lead, the 
Tigers were stalled while Pratt scored 
11 points to lead 15 to 6, The Arks 
began to rally, but were still trailing 
5 points, 16-11, at the close of the 
first quarter. 

Continuing their rally at the start 
of the second quarter the Speermen 
went ahead 20-19, only to have Pratt 
jump ahead 21-20 on two charity 
shots. The Pratt lead was held only a 
Si-ort time before the Arks were in 
possession of the game. The half 
ended with the jucos holding a 31-25 
advantage over the Beavers. 

The Beavers came back fast in the 
second half and would have made their 
10 point rally good except for the one 
man scoring stand put on by Chaplin, 
as he also scored 10 straight points. 
However, the quarter ended v-ich the 
Arks holding only a three point ad- 
\antage with the score 45-42. 

The Bengals continued to stretch 
their lead and ran the score to 5S-5J 
with less than a minute of play left 
in the game. The Beavers, always 
fighting, scored their last four points. 

Parsons Drop 
Arks 67 to 53 

A scoring duel featuring Ark City's 
Allen Chaplin and Parson's Neth 
ended in a 25-point deadlock, but other 
players helped Parsons more Dec. 18, 
and the Cardinals dropped the Arks 
67 to 53. This was the Tigers' first 
defeat since losing their opener to lit. 

Free throws made a big difference 
in the score as the Cardinals hit 17 out 
of 29 tries while the Tigers hit only 
9 out of 17 attempts. 

Thase making the ti'ip include Ed 
Gilmore, John Ogren, Fred Menefee, 
Bill Lee, Leighton Chaplin, Jim 
Thomas, Gilbert Estep, John Gaddis, 
Ellsworth Cooper, Jim Johnson, and 
J. B. Marshall. 

The Tigers continued to hold their 
scoring margin throughout the final 
stanza and the final gun saw them 12 
points out in front.

arch of Dimes 
Drive Begins 

The annual drive to raise funds for 
the March of Dimes, polio fund, has 
begun. In Arkansas City funds are 
being obtained through entertainment 
at the President's Ball, January 31 
and the program sponsored by the 
Jaycee Janes. 

This is the third straight year of 
polio insidence. There is seemingly no 
way of preventing new epidemics in 
1951 and the National Foundation for 
Infantile Paralysis is now treating 
cases of the year past, also. 

A portion of the money raised 
locally will be kept here and the rest 
will be sent to this National Found- 

classes and was a bit surprised at the 
size of them in Juco.

n New Building 

Addition of a basement, approxi- 
mately 80 by 100 feet in area, was 
approved for the new college building 
at a meeting of the board of education 
held January 12. 

The new building is to be a two- 
story structure composed of twenty- 
one class rooms plus an office, and 
other utility rooms. 

A innovation an incinerator shaft 
through which the waste paper of each 
floor may be emptied directly into the 
incinerator to be situated in the base- 

The original plan specified a four- 
foot foundation with supporting piers 
every fourteen feet as support for the 
floor, but the rubble, the remains of 
the old Monroe Hotel that once occu- 
pied the site, was found unsatisfactory 
for the footing. 

The estimate for the pier-supported 
building was $26,000, and with the 
basement, which is to be one large 
room, the estimated cost is $30,102. 

Supt. J. J. Vineyard says that the 
basement is to be partitioned to ac- 
commodate some shop classes until 
such time a room for their permanent 
occupancy can be decided upon. 

The building is to be available by 
November 1, 1951.

Meet Midd, Ga-ed 

The little blonde, blue eyed gal 
you've been seeing dashing down the 
hall lately is probably none other than 
Lyda Vickery, that is if you have the 
right blonde in mind. 

To be a school teacher is this gals 
main objective in life, for a while any- 
way. Lyda likes to go to basketball 
games, slumber parties, eat, football 
games, and dance. 

Peanuts with cokes, conies from 
Pop's after games, and ice cream cones 
are Lyda's ideas of soothing the sto- 
mach. Blue is pleasing to the eye both 
on Lyda and in her eyesight. 

Juco Gals Display 
Basketball Talents 

The Juco basketball boys don't have 
a thing on the girls because the girls 
have been doing a good job with their 
basketball playing too. The gals have 
won as many, which in their eyes is 
good even though they have been 
playing only the senoir girls in their 
gym class. 

Revenge is sweet to the juco 
gals because they were badly beaten 
by the high school girls in that rough 
game of volley ball. The reader need- 
n't feel sorry for the younger girls' 
playing is nothing to be sneezed at 
and has been giving the Juco girls 
quite a bit of competition. 

The girls have been heard to say 
after a few more games they will be 
ready to challenge anyone to a game, 
even the basketball boys.

A poor excuse is better than none 
according to Bill Patterson when he 
called the school the other day to let 
them know that he wouldn't be there. 
His excuse was that he had taken hold 
of a limb over the river and the limb 
broke. Bill was wet and left with no 
clothes to wear to school.

First One in City 

Students of the junior college were 
scheduled to witness the naturaliz- 
ation of five people last Wednesday 
morning, the first such proceeding 
ever to be held in Arkansas City. The 
proceedings were carried on in an 
open session of district court and was 
presided over by Judge Albert Faul- 

The names of the four to be nat- 
uralized were witheld until the open- 
ing of the ceremony, although it was 
known that one each was from Mexico, 
England, Switzerland, and Germany. 

Music was presented by the high 
school band by August Trollman and 
by the school chorus dircted by Char- 
les Hinchee. Short addresses were 
also made by D. Arthur Walker and 
Earle Wright. 

Classes for college night school are 
beginning to take shape as the first 
week of the record term comes to a 
close. Dean Kurt R. Galle says that 
any adult or out-of-school youth may 
attend on a credit or non-credit-basis. 

The classes which are offered, and 
may be offered includes: typing, be- 
ginning and advanced shorthand, blue- 
print reading, clothing, meatcutting, 
public speaking, history of religions, 
first aid, aeronautics, and pottery. 

Dean Galle states that between 
seventy-five and one hundred people 
have asked for classes. 

New Activity Tickets in Use 

Activity tickets are once again to 
be obtaind from the office. The last 
event on the old tickets was the game 
Saturday night. The new tickets are 
good for the next twelve events, be- 
ginning with the game last Friday 
night. Besides basketball games, this 
ticket will be used for the Civic Music 
concert, February 15. 

Students Watch Progress Of 
New Junior College Building 

The progress of the excavation for 
the foundation of the new Juco build- 
ing not only catches the interest of 
Juco students but of the junior high 
and senior high as well. At noons and 
after school a group of students will 
be found lined up along the fence 
watching intently as the hole grows 
deeper and the foundation begins to 
be laid. 

The ground-breaking ceremonies 
for the Junior College building were 
held December 14. 

Charles Livengood, member of the 
United States Air Force, visited school 
a few weeks ago before he proceeded 
to Alaska where he will enter radar 

Seven Future Teachers To Begin 
Practice in Elementary Schools 

This semester seven juco students 
will serve as student teachers in four 
of the elementary schools. Those 
teaching at Frances Willard will be 
Mildred Marrs under Mrs. Charline 
Schifferdecker in the fifth grade; Al- 
bert Newton under Mrs. Mary E. 
Abbott, in the sixth grade; and Bar- 
bara Newton under Miss Mae Sullivan 
in the second grade. Helen Ramsey 
will go to Pershing to work with Mrs. 
Eva Watson in the sixth grade. The 
two going to Washington will be Bel- 
va Gardner to practice teaching under 
Miss Opal Lemert in the second grade 
and Phyllis Christenson under Miss 
Grace Belden in the third grade. Joan 
Britton will go to Lincoln to work 
under Miss Bertha Bloomfield in the 
sixth grade . 

These student teachers must spend 
ninety clock hours in the assigned 

room. Two- thirds of the time will be 
in actual teaching at the school. This 
will include teaching the entire class, 
supervising the playground, working 
with individual pupils or groups, 
checking papers, recording scores, di- 
recting a trip, organizing an exhibit, 
and any other activity in which the 
supervising teacher wishes them to 

Before they can be given complete 
charge of a class, each must make a 
lesson plan and have it approved by 
the supervising and training teacher, 
Miss Myra Hardy. They will also be 
expected to keep data on personality 
and academic traits of their pupils. 

A few of these students plan to 
teach next year in rural schools while 
others expect to continue their edu-

Tigers Meet 
Pratt, Dodge, 
Garden City 

The Tigers, now in their last half 
of play, will schedule three games 
during the next two weeks. All three 
games will be divisional. 

First on the Tiger agenda will be a 
return game with the Pratt Beavers, 
Jan. 30 in the aud-gym. The Beavers 
are currently in the western division 
cellar with no wins and four losses. 
The Tigers beat the Beavers 58-54 in 
their first encounter this season. 

On Feb. 2, the Arks will travel to 
Dodge City to face the Dodge City 
Conqs. The Bengals will be out to 
avenge the trouncing they recieved at 
the hands of the conqs here last Fi-iday

spot in the western division with three 
wins and one loss.

end double-header at Garden City, 
where they will play the Broncs, Feb. 
3. The Broncs are in second place in 
the western division with two wins and 
one defeat. 

By beating these three games, a 
nicker of hope would still remain in 
the Tigers chances of tieing for top 
spot in the western-division. 

Blue Dragons Drag 
Tigers Into Loss 

The Tigers suffered their first divis- 
ion loss of the season to the Hutch- 
inson Blue Dragons, Jan. 12, 54 to 42. 

After getting off to a slow start, 
the Bengals ran an 8-0 score to 8-7 
before the Dragons hit again. The 
Dragons jumped their lead to six 
points but became stalled while the 
Arks tied the score 18-18. Hutch tal- 
lied three more points before the half 


The jucos came back with their us- 
ual steam in the second half and went 
into the lead for the first time with 
the score 26-25. After a see-saw bat- 
tle for the lead, the score was again 
tied 31-31. 

At this point Chaplin was fouled 
out and the Arks went to pieces while 
the Dragons hit 11 points to the 
Tigers three before the quarter ended. 

The Tigers never threatened in the 
final stanza while Hutch gradually in- 
creased their lead. 

Johnson and Ogren were high-point 
men for the Bengals with 11 points

the third quarter only to see the Arks 
jump ahed 38-33. Eight points by the 
Broncs saw them again take the lead

tallying six points to make the score 
53-52. The Broncs were able to stall 
out the game.

Conqs Conquer 
Tigers 57 to 47 
In Second Loss 

The Dodge City Conqs put a dent in 
the Tiger title hopes last Friday night 
by dumping the Arks 57-47. This was 
the second straight division loss for 
the Bengals and the first loss on the 
home courts this season. 

Play in the first quarter was about 
even with neither team gaining a large 
advantage. The score was 15 to 13 in 
favor of the Tigers as the period 

The Conqs jumped into a six point 
lead while the Arks were collecting 
only two. The Bengals cut the lead to 
two points by dumping four points 
through before the half ended. The 
score was 25-23. 

Coming back fast in the third 
quarter, Dodge cinched the game by 
i acking up a total of 21 points to the 
Arks 12. This ran their lead to 16 
points with the score 46 to 35. 

Dodge ran their lead to 16 points 
before the Bengals hit again. The 
Tiger squad rallied with six points, 
but could never cut the lead any 

Jim Johnson was high point man 
with 18 points with Gilmore and Chap- 
lin each collecting 12. Clowdis was 
high for Dodge with 13 points. Both 
teams hit 11 free throws. 

Tigers Preak Jinx 
And Losing Streak 

A jinx which has failed to let the 
Tigers win a game at Coffeyville the 
past several seasons was broken last 
Tuesday night when the Bengals edged 
the Red Ravens 51 to 49. This win also 
broke a three game losing streak for 
the Tigers.

This play, under the direction of 
Miss Virginia Weisgerber, speech and 
English instructor, is a drama by Ar- 
thur Miller. It won the Drama Critics' 
award upon its presentation in 1947. 

The plot involves guilt for the sale 
of cracked cylinder heads to the air 
force. Also of interest is the fact that 
a son has been missing for over three 
years and that his fiancee is engaged 
to the brother of the missing man. 

The tenseness of the dramatic 
scenes is lightened by the affairs of

World Traveler Describes 
Russian Peoples 

, Newton H. Bell, world traveler, and 
lecturer, addressed the Juco assem- 
bly January 26. 

He spoke of the natives of Euro- 
pean and Asiatic Russia as being a 
tough and not too well informed 
group of people. His graphic descrip- 
tion of the system of propaganda 
makes the attitude of the average 
Russian peasant and factory worker 
more clearly understandable.

Progress on New 
Juco Building 
Rapidly Increasing 

Since the ground-breaking ceremony 
on December 14, 1950, the building of 
the new junior college building has 
gotten well underway. Progress on 
the building, at the site of the old 
Monroe Hotel, is increasing rapidly. 

Already workmen are building 
forms for the foundations, and several 
spots of the foundation have been 
poured. Cold weather has been hamp- 
ering the progress started on the ce- 
ment work. 

The power shovel and trucks have 
been busy, digging the basement 
which the board of education recently 
voted to install. Obstructions in the 
digging have been the big rocks and 
slabs of stone that were once the walls 
of the Monroe Hotel. Also several 
cables used in the wrecking have 
been uncovered in the debris. 

The basment is to be composed of 
one large room 80 by 100 feet and 
plans are under consideration to par- 
tition it off for several shop classes. 

The recent cold wave which has hit 
all over Kansas temporarily stopped 
work on the building, but as soon as 
the weather cleared up and the ground 
dried work again began. The new 
home for Juco students may be ready 
for use by November 1. 

Enforced Vacation 
Not To Be Made-up 

Word has been recieved from the 
board of education that the four days 
that school was dismissed will not 
have to be made up. 

The Board of Education voted on 
the measure and passed it in the 
meeting of February 5th. 

Also the board stated that if for 
any other reason school is dis- 
missed this year, that time will 
have to be made up later in the year. 

So good news to all you students 
that time you had for vacation won't 
have to be made up after all. 

General Motors Presents Show 

Rex Moore and Gene Viffordi, speak- 
ers in the General Motors assembly 
were able to manufacture synthetic 
rubber in a matter of minutes by mix- 
ing only two substances. This was 
part of their "Preview of Progress" 

They were also able to break a 
glass by mechanical inbeation. A dis- 
cussion on electric lighting and jet 
propulsion demonstrations were in- 
cluded in the show. 

Palmer, Ziegler, Baker 
Win Blotter Contest 

Duane Palmer, Jerry Ziegler, and 
Ben Baker are the three winners in* 
the Printing Department's blotter 
printing contest. Duane is a senior 
high student; Jerry, a junior high 
student; and Ben, a juco freshman. 
The prizes were $3, $2, and $1. 

The judges for the contest were 
Charles Coffelt, composing room fore- 
man at the Traveler, Clint Fisk, Tra- 
veler press foreman, and Bill Abelt, 
compositor-foreman at Gilliland's 
Commercial Printing Company. 

The blotters were judged for gen- 
eral design, selection of type, spelling, 
impression, register, ink control, spac- 
ing, content other than required in- 
formation, and correct use of initial 

Those receiving honorable mention 
are Young Snodgrass, David Cushman, 
Eric Crampton, and Richard Akers. 

All blotters will now be sent in to 
the International Graphic Arts Edu- 
cational Association in Washington, 
D. C. 

This is the second year this contest 
has been held in the local schools.

Fair Sex Invade 
Upholstery Class 
With Woman Talk 

Following the lead of Waunita Hite 
Schumann, who was the pioneer back 
in 1949, there are now five of the 
"fair sex" in the college upholstery 
class. Ann Lee Hughett, who was the 
second female to take the course, com- 
pleted an ottoman during the first 
semester and has now started on a 
platform rocker. 

Carrie Webb, Betty Webb, Helen 
Scammehorn, and Mrs. May White, 
newest members of the class, are now 
building ottomans and each plans to 
make a platform rocker before the 
semester is over. 

"We're industrious and we're hav- 
ing a great old time, in case any other 
girls are interested," says Helen. How- 
ever, the talk runs in typical woman 
fashion. Instead of asking for a six- 
inch metal ruler, it is now, "Do you 
have any of those little things to 
measure with?" 

Masculine industrial arts students 
are taking the invasion of their last 
stronghold philosophically and calmy 
assisting the neophytes. 

Grade Cards Tell 
Tales On Studes 

The roving reporter has been out 
once again and has come up with an- 
other poll. This time he has been 
around inquiring about the grades 
received on the recently distributed 
grade cards in ACJC. 

The random poll was taken among 
20 students in Juco, ten sophomores 
and ten freshmen. This poll is not ex- 
actly right to the point but it does 
give an estimation for the grades be- 
ing earned around ACJC. 

The ten sophomores had a grand 
total of 16 A's, 21 B's, 12 C's and 3 
D's. Freshmen, however, were close 
behind with 10 A's, 28 B's, 10 C's, and 
5 D's. Neither class, out of the 20 
students questioned, had any non-pas- 
sing grade. There are rumors that this 
condition was not universal. 

Among the twenty people con- 
fronted there were three who had all 
A's, two sophomores and one fresh- 
man. Three students had all B's, and 
all were freshmen. 

Recent reports around are that 
students in this time of uncertanity 
have been letting down their school 
work. Grades of people in ACJC show 
that some still are on the job, 

Patterson, who was assistant sports 
editor, is now in the Army.

The junior college Tigers ended 
their western division swing Satur-

day stand by the Tigers was the 
knockout blow to Bengal chances for 
the title 

The Bengals left Friday morning 
on their western jaunt. Friday night 
the Dodge City Conqs plaved the host 

The tilt started off at a slow pace 
but gradually quickened. The Tigers 
started to roll with about eight min- 
utes left before the half and pulled 
ahead but a last second Dodge goal 
tied it up at 32 all. 

The Conqs opened up with a bar- 
rage and increased their lead although 
the Tigers out-scored the Conqs 
in the last period, the final score 
ended in favor of the Dodge team, 

Saturday the Bengals went on to 
Garden City to meet the Broncs. 

The "Busters" rolled up a fast 
score in their surge, but the Tigers 
poured on a rally to tie the score at 
17-17. Then a hot Garden five pulled 
away to lead at the half 33-28. 

The Broncs, who play in spurts, 
came out at the half and the Tigers 
out scored them in the first ten min- 
utes, but then Garden pulled away at 
33-34 and lead 53-33 with about eight 
minutes left. 

A late Tiger rally was not enough, 
however, and Garden City came out

Early Defeat 
Against Eagles 

The Tigers avenged an early sea- 
son defeat last Friday night as they 
edged the St. John's Eagles 49-47. 
The game was close all the way un- 
til the final minutes when the Bengals 
pulled into the lead. 

Both teams got off to a slow start 
with the Johnnies pulling into the 
lead. The Arks were trailing 17-14 as 
the period ended. 

Picking up speed in the second 
quarter, the Tigers jumped into a 
five point lead as the score went to 
^9-24. Three points by St. John's

stock is fabricated and ready for in- 

Over 100 yards of concrete have 
been poured in the west section foot- 
ing and the forms have been set to 
accommadate the rest. Wall section 
forms are being fabricated and in-

Food Odors in Hall 
Causes Envious Looks 
From Other Students 

Have you seen the plates of salads 
brought into various class rooms for 
the teachers ? Or have you gone sniff- 
ing down the halls lately? These sa- 
lads and many of the odors are made 
by the junior college cooking class 
under the direction of Mrs. Harold 

The class has been making enough 
salads for each of them and one to be 
given to a faculty member or a chosen 
boy friend. 

Two weeks ago the class prepared 
lunch for themselves. Each of the stu- 
dents was assigned duties in the pre- 
paration of the meal. After eating the 
food they had cooked, the cleaning- 
chores were divided among them. 

The only complaint heard, is from 
students not enrolled in this class. 
These other students want some also. 
The smells are most intriguing. 

Four Students Present Speech 
Samples for Rotary Club 

Pour students from A. E. Maag's 
speech class were guests of the Rotary 
Club, Monday, February 26. The stu- 
dents were Naomi Clark, Leighton 
Chaplin, Jim Cox, and Dolores Mor- 

Each of these students participated 
in the program by giving a sample of 
their speech work. These are all sec- 
ond semester students of the Public 
Speaking class. 

Both Naomi Clark and Dolores Mor- 
ton presented informative speeches. 
Leighton Chaplin used the declama- 
tion type of speech and Jim Cox gave 
a dramatic reading. 

In English literature class, it was 
remarked that many people believe in 
reincarnation, a re-birth after death, 
either in the form of some animal or 
in another person. Someone spoke up 
to say that Henry Ford had been 
such a believer. 

Johnnie Gaddis was heard to re- 
mark, "He would never make it back 
in a Ford car." 

Mispronunciation of names is al- 
ways a source of amusement. 

One such mistake is the way in 
which a teacher calls Neva Thornbro. 
It seems he makes the -bro sound like 
brew. Hmm, maybe he knows some- 
thing about this sophomore and her 
crazy antics we haven't heard about. 

Several servicemen are or have been 
home on leave from their regular 
duties in the Navy and Marines. Jim 
Jordan and Phil Ayers recieved leaves 
from the Navy Department. Jordan 
has been in the Pacific and Korea. 

Ayers , a radio electriction aboard an 
aircraft carrier, was in the Korean 
conflict. Jacques Mitchell, a marine 
reservist who was recently called into 
active duty, was home. He returned 
the 21st to Santa Anna, California, 
where he is stationed as permanent 

Maybe some of you are wondering 
just what happened to Allen Chaplin 
up at El Dorado. It seems as though 
he was in the scramble for the ball, 
as usual, and someone's head was a 
bit tougher than his. But seroiusly, the 
cut was pretty bad, and required four 
stiches when he got back to AC that

Miss Co-Ed this issue has brown 
eyes, black hair, is a freshman, and 
during her 18 years of growing has 
failed to reach the five-foot-tall mark 
(by one inch). This miss is rather 
hard to find since she spends all her 
free time at the Miller Supply Shop 
where she is employed. 

She is a member of the Tiger Ac- 
tion Club and her job is to make the 
football and basketball posters that 
you see in the halls before every 
game. She is also a member of the 
Spanish Club. If you haven't guessed 
by now, her name is Henrietta 01- 

Henrietta says that she likes all 
spores but enjoys basketball the most. 
Her favorite color is red and she 
doesn't have any favorite food which 
is probably the reason f-*.e didn't 
grow any more than she did. 

Henrietta doesn't have any partic- 
ular plans for the future, but she isn't 
very enthused about being a career

Sixty-one Candidates 
Up For Graduation 

The college office has released the 
list of sophomore candidates for grad- 
uation this spring. 

At the first of the present school 
year there were seventy-four pros- 
pects for graduation. So far there 
have been thirteen students who have 
withdrawn or entered the service who 
might have graduated. 

There is a total of sixty-one can- 
didates on the list. Twenty of which 
are girls and forty-one boys. The list 
as compared with last year's class is 
five less, last year's class numbered 


No Freaks Found 
Among Sophomore 
Graduating Class 

Several interesting quips were found 
in the recent measurements for the 
caps and gowns for the graduates. The 
measurements have been taking place 
in the junior college office for the past 
three weeks. 

Some students seemed as though 
they didn't want to graduate very bad 
as they waited till the last minute and 
then had to be dragged to the office by 
the secretary, Miss Catherine Stover. 

Some of the interesting facts found 
were, that Belva Gardner has the 
smallest head, it measured GMj". It 
was a close race for the biggest head 
between Winston Menish and Bob 
Campbell, but Bob won out in a close 
strech !'>/,," to 7%". 

"Longest man alive", John Ogren, 
is also the longest man in ACJC, 6' 7" 
The shortest people in Juco were 
Belva and Carrie Webb who were 
both 5' 2". There were fifteen people 
who measured over the six foot mark. 

Contenders for the title held by 
Charles Atlas were Sam Burns and 
Charles Campbell with chest measur- 
ments of 41 inches. 

But really people around Jrcj aren't 
a bunch of freaks, they're a good 
bunch of normal American students. 

The meeting, which was to have 
been held at the home of Robert Warr- 
ender, west of the city, was held in 
the junior college club room becauco 
of b?d weather. 

Refreshments were served by Mrs. 
Albert Warrender and Mrs. Anne 

Dorothy Slaven received the prize 
in a vocabulary game in Spanish. 

Mrs. Opal Rose, Ashton, and Lor-

"The shortest man alive," well 
hardly that but he is pretty short. 
Five feet six inches, this is the exact 
height of John Gaddis, Mr. Ed for 
this issue. Brown hair, brown eyes 
and a personality that really goes well 
with such a person. 

John, his nickname "Little Brush," 
is one of ACJC's all around athletes. 
He played in the backfield on the Ben- 
gal football team and is guard on the 
cage five. He attended high school at 
Rapid City, South Dakota, where he 
was also a member of the track team. 

He also takes in an occassional 
round of golf, with his father who is 
his favorite partner. 

John is a pretty active boy around 
college. He was recently elected by 
the freshman class to succeed Wayne 
Parker as student council represent- 
ative. He is a member of the college 
band, and plays the trumpet and the 
baritone. In his pastime he likes to

The Tigers dropped the game 
to the Pirates by the same margin as 
they won here at the first of the seas- 
on. In the first meeting the score end- 
ded 42-32. 

Ark City chalked up 21 points in 
the first ten minutes but garned only 
six free tosses in the second quarter. 
The Pirates were ahead 32-27 at the 

The Arks couldn't close the gap in 
the third and trailed 49-37 at the ten

Tigers to Enter 
AAU Tourney 
At Wichita 

Coach "Bunt" Speer states that he 
has made no definite plans for the 
track team this season. 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers have entered in the Missouri 
Valley Amature Athletic Union Bas- 
ketball Tournament. The event is to 
be held in Wichita and is to start Sat- 
urday, March 3rd. 

The Bengals and coaches go to the 
tournament for their first game Sat- 
urday night. They meet the Ramona 
Independents in the Forum Saturday. 
If they win their first game they ad- 
vance and play the Boeing Cadets on 
Monday night in the 6:45 game. 

Last year the Bengals won their 
first game against the Newton Neb- 
ergall Oilers and then were defeated 
by a fast Gypsum Merchant five in 
their second game. 

The locals hope to fare somewhat 
better this year in the tourney than 
last year. 

Statistics Show Agressive 
Playing Pays Off In Points 

That agressive pay off in points is 
shown by team statistics for the first 
sixteen games played by the Tigers 
this season. The top four point makers 
for the Bengals are also the top four 
foul makers. 

Allen Chaplin, top scorer with 247 
points, ranks second in fouls with a 
total of 44. Jim Johnson, who made 
157 points, ranks first in fouls with 
63. Ed Gilmore and John Ogren with 
114 points and 105 points respectively 
also rank high in fouls with 37 and 
40 respectively. 

Although the Arks have a 9 win 
8 loss record they have tallied only 
844 points while their opponents hav^ 
racked up a total of 889 points. This 
gives the Bengals an offensive average 
of 49.64 points per game and a de- 
fensive average of 52.29. 

Of the 722 points scored by the top 
eight scorers, 178 came on free shots 
while 594 came from field goals.

Tennis and Golf 
Players To Start 
Practice Soon For 51 

With the basketball season rapidly 
drawing to the close, it is once again 
time for spring sports. R. C. Jucld, 
tennis coach, and Dale Hanson, golf 
mentor, plan to post their call for 
men next week. 

Judd reports that four tennis play- 
ers have already signed up. They are 
Larry Penner, Allen Chaplin, John 
Ogren, and Jim Thomas. However, 
anyone interested may try out since 
he will need more men to complete his 
squad. "From where I sit, it looks as 
if we will have a very successful sea- 
son," says Judd. 

Doubt still reigns as to whether or 
not there will be a golf squad this 
season. Dale Hanson says that there 
will be a golf squad providing that 
there is enough interest shown by 
local golfers and providing that mat- 
ches can be made with other schools. 

Grizzlies Win, 
Tie Bengals For 
Fourth Place 

The El Dorado Grizzlies stopped 
the Bengals, 65-50, Feb. 16 at El Dor- 
ado. The El Dorado win enabled the 
Grizzlies to pull into a tie with the 
Tigers for fourth place in the western 

In the first quarter the Grizzlies 
jumped into a 7-2 lead before the Arks 
started clicking. The Bengal rally fell 
short as the quarter ended with the 
score 12-10 in the Grizzlies favcr. 

Coming back in the second stanza, 
the Speermen tied the score 15-15 only 
to see El Dorado collect 14 points to 
the Arks two. 

In the second half the Arks cut a 
twelve point lead in half and made 
the score 39-33, but failed to g in any 
more. The close of th? periol saw 
the Arks still trailing 45-37. 

The Bengals pulled to four points 
of the El Dorado five with the score 
48-52. At this point the Arks lost 
three starters, Gilmore and Johnson 
on fouls and Allen Chaplin went out 
on an eye injury. The Arks scored only 
once before the game ended while the 
Grizzlies had countered with 13 points. 

Chaplin was high for the Arks with 
17 points, while Bowers was high man 
for the night with 22 points. 

Juco Girls Play 
Cage Tourney 

The junior college girls' basketball

score was 18-6 when they defeated 
Mclzen's team. These are both senior

the team under Evelyn Woods. Mon-

Records Show 
Arks Have Many 
Tennis Champs 

Although the records are incomplete 
prior to 1946, the Tiger tennis squad 
has built up an enviable record over 
the years. Besides several singles 
championships, they have taken the 
state doubles chompionship for five 
consecutive years. 

In 1934 Fred Whittle and Kenneth 
Engleman were second in state dou- 
bles. Dick Sewell was state singles 
champ in 1935. 

There are no further records until 
1939, when Ark City came in second 
in both singles and doubles at the 
state tourney. The tennis squad was 
then disbanded during the war years. 

In 1946, Don Duncan and Gene Bell 
took the state doubles title, and Dun- 
can went on to rack up the singles 
title to give the Arks a grand slam. 
Charles Hutchinson and Douglas Mc- 
Call brought home the doubles title 
again in 1947, while Bill Clay and 
Wayne Estus were doubles cbamps 
in '48. 

The Arks again made a grand sweep 
of the state tourney in 1949, with 
Clay winning the singles and Bill 
Baily and Bob Sneller coping the dou- 
bles title. Last year was also success- 
ful for the Juddmen as Allen Chaplin 
and Al McKeever won the doubles 
title for the fifth straight time. 

Can they do it again? With Chaplin, 
John Ogren, Jim Thomas, and Larry 
Penner out, the outlook is "very favor- 
able,'' according to R. C. Judd, tennis

first part of the game with the lead 
changing hands a several times be- 
fore the Tigers pulled into a 15-12 
lead at the first period. 

The Bengals then ran their lead 
to six points as the score went to 21- 
15. A Beaver rally was good and the 
Pratt five were ahead 29-28 at the 

Scoring was close in the third stan- 
za with the lead changing hands with 
practically every shot. The score was 
tied 42-42 at the end of the period. 

The lead changed hands five times 
in the final period before the Beavers 
jumped into a four point lead. A 
Tiger rally failed as the Tigers missed 
two long shots before the final gun. 

Stivers, of Pratt, was high scorer 
for the night with 22 points while 
Allen Chaplin was next with 22 count-

Arks Win Two, 
Drop One at 
Wichita Tourney 

Although the Tigers entered the 
AAU Cage Tourney at Wichita un- 
seeded, they won over the Ramona 
Independents, 36-25,the Boeing Kay- 
detts, 53-42, before losing to the top 
seeded Topeka Dechand Roofers, 62- 

In the first round the Bengals met 
the Ramona Independents. Sloppy 
ball handling and no hustle were 
against the Tigers, but after catching 
fire, managed to lead 20-9 at the half. 
The scoring in the second half was 
even with both teams netting 16 

Ihe scoring for the night was 
evenly divided, with Allen Chaplin 
grabbing honors with nine counters. 
Tigers Wallop Boeing 

Monday night the Jucos laid one on 
the Boeing Kaydetts in the 6:30 tilt, 
53-42. A hot bunch of Tigers poured 
it on in the first half by pushing their 
offense, an were leadin 31-17 at the 
intermission. They came out in the 
last period and pulled a fast one on 
the Boeing team to win 53-42 and 
advance into the third round against 
the top-seeded Topeka team. 

Gilbert Estep lead the scoring on 
his hottest night of the season, 
caging six fielders and four fi'oe 
throws, a total of 16 points. 
Scare Roofers in Third 

The Bengals put a sure scare into 
the highly rated Topeka Deckand 
Roofers on Tuesday night in the first 
half . Hitting and rebounding proved 
rough against the taller, more ex- 
perienced Roofers. Johnson, Ogren, 
Cilmore and Estep were rebounding 
against uneven odds, but proved a big 
asset to Tiger hopes in tbe first half. 
Leading 23-18 with two minutes left 
in the half, two long shots narrowed 
t 'P Bem-al margin to one point at the 
half-way mark. 

A hot Topeka team came out aft r 
a short rest and opened up and were 
leading 62-40 at the final gun.

night with 11 points. The scoring 
for the rest of the team was well

1951 ! igerama 
Affair Given 

It's the twenty-first birthday for 
the Tigerama. Scheduled for Friday 
evening, April 13, this annual affair 
was first begun in 1930 to introduce 
cur junior college to seniors from the 
local school and from surrounding 

The first ones to be given were only 
receptions and musical revues. Then 
in 1937 the first dance was held, to 
iiie amazement and shock of many 

During the first fifteen years, only 
a sprmg theme or spring prom was 
used. However, beginning in 1945, a 
Lasic theme was started to be carried 
cut in program and decorations. In 
1945 Stardust was chosen. The 1946 
e.enc had two themes, Candyland and 
Ad. erasing. Themes in following 
j ears were as follows: 1947, Musical 
Variety Show; 1948, S. S. Tigerama; 
1949, Fiesta; and 1950, Ci.idy's Ba 1. 
For Cindy's Ball a Queen Cindy was 
chosen, Miss Carjlee Rice of Cedar 
Vale high school, visiting senior. For 
two years the Tigerama was missing 
from the year's activities. This was 
1943 and 1944, during the v ar. 

Each year careful thought and 
planning go into the preparation of 
thi Tigerama and in choosing the 
theme. The theme this year, "Flirta- 
tion Walk," is being out in the pro- 
gram end decorations Ly the social 
c mn.ittee.

On your way to the juco club room, 
you pass a door, usually closed, 
and a window-shaped opening with 
a screen over it. These are both open- 
ings to the Tiger Tales office. 

Recently, however, some people 
seemingly have mistaken it for a han- 
dy place to dispose of candy bar pa- 
pers. "Please throw your paper scraps 
in a waste basket and not in the 
office." say staff members. 

Also, how about keeping the club 
room for junior college students, only. 
To do so all that need be done is to 
ask any high school or junior high 
school student to leave. If they refuse, 
you may need to use the physical ef- 
fort of going to ask a faculty member 
to help the uninvited to change then- 

The destruction of the radio-phono- 
graph has demonstrated the inadvis- 
aility in sharing the club room. 

How about your cooperation m 
making this just the juco clubroom? 

A Qland Plaif! 

All our thanks and priase to the 
students and faculty members for the 
grand junior college play, "All My 
Sons." Much hard and tednus work 
was needed to give as grand a pro- 
duction as that. Much of this credit 
goes to Miss Virginia Weisgerber for 
her able direction, as well as to tb.3 
cast for giving their time and patience 
to make such a wonderfJ perfor-

that it leaves but a few available for

Mr. Day was mixing some dye for 
the next lab period when one curious 
student asked, "What is he doing?" 

"Oh, he's getting ready to dye his

Some students observe that Curt

now than he did before he withdrew. 
Wonder why? ? ?

The frowns you saw in the halls

Hanson Says Golf 
is Very Doubbful 

Golf Coach Dale Hanson reports 
that it is very doubtful that there 
will be any matchies scheduled for the 
junior college golf squad this season. 
The reason for not scheduling matches 
is due to the "Lack of experience on 
the squad," Hanson says. 

Only four men are working out at 
the Country Club course. They are 
Sam Burns, Gene Ward, Duane John- 
son, and Wilbur Kilblane. 

Hanson says that there are enough 
experienced golfers in junior college 
to make a squad, but they have failed 
so far to report.

Invited To 




The Arkansas City Junior College 
has invited several surrounding high 
school senior classes to attend the 
the twenty-first annual presentation 
of the Tigerama. The yearly affair is 
scheduled for Friday night, April 13. 
The theme this year is "Flirtation 

The affair was first begun in 1930 
to introduce the seniors of the sur- 
rounding towns to the local junior 
college. During the war years the 
presentation was discontinued, that 
was in 1943 and 1944. The recent 
Tigeramas have proven great suc- 
cesses and this years affair is ex- 
pected to top them all.' 

Schools who have already sent their 
acceptances include Arkansas City 
High School, Wellington, Newkirk, 
Dexter, Burden, Cambridge, and 
Cedar Vale. 

Master of Ceremonies this year is 
Leighton Chaplin, president of the 
junior college student council. The 
program selected for this year's 
"Flirtation Walk" is promised to be 
very entertaining. During the pro- 
gram there will be a recognition 
of the schools representated. 

Also the social committee plans to 
encourage the playing of progressive 
canasta, which is to be six handed and 
teams of three. Prizes are to be 

Only seniors from invited schools, 
junior college students, graduates of 
juco or high school, or people of that 
status are invited to attend. 

Interior Decorating Colors for Juco 

The interior decorating for the new 
juco building has been decided upon. 

The walls and ceilings are to be of 
pastel shades, of a color, least tiring 
on the eyes, green. 

The floors anr stairways are of 
"Terrazzo" a crushed tile embedded 
in cement, and the lavatory floors are 
are to be of Flexachrome over a 
plastic base. 

The wall and ceiling color den- 
sities are to be graduated so as to 
afford as much light as possible.

The future for the junior college 
looks very bright at the moment. At 
long last it seems as though the jun-

in the basement of the senior high

about the color schemes, light fix-

started. Industrial classes will have 
a separate building which they need 
and deserve.

rooms ? Sounds like a real student 

Looking toward the fall of 1951, 
when the junior college building is to 
be completed, makes the sophomores 
wish they could help to "break in" the 
new juco. 

Our sincere thanks and appreciation 
go to all the planners and buiders of 
this plant. They have made a wonder-

in Kansas to administer the selective 
service college qualification test. 

Examinations are to be given on 
May 26, June 16, and June 30, and 
are to be three hours in length and to 
be taken in a single morning session. 

There are over 1000 examination 
centers throughout the United States 
and the possessions, 22 of which are 
in the State of Kansas. 

The results of these tests, together 
with the evidence of school perform- 
ance, will be used by the selective 
service local board in considering de- 
ferrment of students on the 'basis of 
qualifications to pursue studies at 
college and graduate levels. 

This draft regulation has caused 
a great amount of discussion through- 
out the school. Some of the opinions 
have been compiled in the for.ii ot a 

When asked what their sentiments 
were concerning the tests the follow- 
ing statements were given :

"Just because one person is better in- 
formed concerning a choice of subjects, 
not his own, another. He should 
not be discriminated against. His life 
is just as valuable to him as that of 
the informed person is to himself. The 
country belongs to all of us and it is 
as much one man's duty to serve as

Bob Howarth: "So am I". 

Bill Thomas: "I'm against it". 

Carl Ousley: "If they take one they 
may as well take them all".

many people. I don't think they should

to go on to college. I'd probably be

idea. When some of the college hoys 
get in they will be imposed upon, it's

Sophomore Pictures 
Are Completed 

The last of the sophomore pictures 
were taken last week. This marked the 
27th year Cornish Studio has taken 
the graduating pictures, the first class 
being in 1924. 

In 1924 individual pictures were ta- 
ken of the graduates and were in- 
cluded in the first junior college year- 
book, the Pioneer. However, the Pio- 
neer was never published again and 
group pictures were taken for sev- 
eral years. Finally the class became 
so large that a group picture could no 
longer be taken, so the plan of indivi- 
dual pictures was again put into effect. 

The individual pictures were placed 
in groups and hung in room 8 until 
there was no more space about the 

The complete file of graduate pic- 
tures is at Cornish Studio and will be 
brought up to date when there is

e^iaut about a Picnic 

In the past it has been the custom 
for the junior college to have a school 
picnic one afternoon toward the end 
of school. 

This year the event has not as yet 
been planned. The main reason is that 
the sponsors doubt if there are enough 
students interested or that would back 
the picnic. The sophomores that went 
last year can vouch for the good time 
everyone had. It seems a shame such a 
get-together cannot be had again this 

If you are really interested and 
want this picnic, please tell a stu- 
dent council representative or the stu- 
dent council president, Leighton Chap- 
lin.— C. H. 

Erwin Work who is student under 
an athletic scholarship at Wichita Un- 
iversity was home over the week end 
with one of his buddies Hodge of 
Wichita. Erwin was juco track ace 
on the 48' and 49' cinder squads at 

Suppressed Book-of-the-Month" 


The other day in Mi'. Maag's ad- 
vanced speech class the students were 
telling of their most embarrasing 
moment. Kenneth Barton told of the 
timehe entered the ring to box only 
to discover he had forgotten to put 
on his shorts. 

From the back of the room Maggie 
Fife readily replied, "I never had an 
embarrasing moment, cause I never 
wear any shorts." 


Several former students of ACJC 

have been home on furlough from tho 
service lately. Home from duty in the 
U. S. Navy were Charley Miller, Ee- 
Roy Davis, Aubrey Foster, Dean Wal- 
trip, Jerry Watson, and most recently 
Bill Lee. Resting and recuperating 
from the Air Force are Fred Fritz-

to figure out what Miss Hawley had 
said and then how to answer. 

During this hesitation Miss Hawiey 
remarked. "Hurry up. Youre getting 
older by the minute."

The Tigerama held Friday, April 
13, proved a success. The theme car- 
ried out this year was "Flirtation 

The auditorium was decorated to 
look as if it were a park. The walk was

fashioned band stand in the center. 

Punch was "dipped out" of a well 
with cookies surrounding the edge. A 
settee was handily placed under the 
kissing rock.

Tigers Have Two 
Matches ; Two 
Tourneys Left 

The tennis season is rapidly draw- 
ing to a close as are all spring sports. 
The Tiger racketeers have but two 
scheduled matches left this season, 
not including two tournaments. 

The netmen will play Hutchinson 
here this afternoon. It will be the first 
time these two squads have met this 
season and it will probably be the 
Tiger's toughest match of the season. 

The Arks will meet St. Johns Col- 
lege at Winfield on May 3, in the 
Tigers' last school match of the sea- 
son. In their first encounter this sea- 
son the Winfield squad was blanked 
6-0 by the Bengals. 

The next day, May 4, will see the 
Juddmen traveling to Hutchinson 
where they will participate in the 
Hutchinson tournament. 

On May 12 the Arks will start 
competition in the state tourney at 
El Dorado to determine the state jun- 
ior college singles and doubles champs. 
The jucos have taken the doubles 
championship for the last five years 
and have a good chance of repeating 
again this season. 

Spring and Summer Courses 
Will Be Offered on Demand 

Spring term and summer school clas- 
ses will be taught on a demand basis. 

Those subjects now being considered 
are freshman English, second sem- 
ester, and some social study groups. 

Since the summer session depends

Picnic Plans 
Are Being Made 
For May 17 

Plans are being completed for the 
juco picnic, May 17. Jim Bossi is 
general chairman and has appointed 
committees to see about final arrange- 

Tentative plans call for the picnic to 
be held at Lion's Park northeast of 
the city. Cars will leave school around 
1 p.m. and the afternoon will be spent 
in playing games and eating. 

Those going are to pay fifty cents 
at the office and get tickets there. 
Three of the tickets are for three 
bottles of pop and the other one is for 
en ice cream bar. The other food can 
be ^ad by just going through the line. 

Students are urged to sign up as 
quickly as possible as the picnic can

Dean Galle Urges 
Boys To Take Tests 

Dean K. R. Galle urges all college 
men to obtain their applications for 
the selective service tests immediately. 
These tests are to be given here in 
Arkansas City on May 26, June 16, 
and June 30. 

"There is no harm in taking the 
test, it is to the man's advantage. It 
will permit some to complete their 
college education before going into 
service." Dean Galle pointed out. 
"None is exempted from service, but 
some will be given more time bef<v« 
entering the armed forces. It is a good 
thing for the individual who wants to 
go to college. This test is an aptitude 
test, not an intelligence tect." 

Tricksters Place in Relays 

Th" Tiger track team, who partici- 
pated in the Hutchinsnn relays, placed 
in three events. Bill Neal was edged 
rut of first place by Dodge City in the 
jivelin event. Carl Ousley placed 
fourth in the 880-yard rnn. while the 
880- yard relay team took third place. 

Thank You Note 

To tne Student Body:

a great deal of cooperation and 
help are required. Several projects 
were carried through to success

take this opportunity to thank all

ing up other things and a lot of

said about it, please realize that all 
of your efforts were greatly app- 
reciated !

NO. 1 

New College 
Home Delayed by 
Weather, Floods 

Progress on the new junior college 
building is rapidly increasing and the 
building is gradually taking shape of 
the blueprints. The building was ex- 
pected to be finished in time for the 
second semester classwork of this year 
but various hindrances slowed pro- 
gress and the completion date has 
been set back. 

Flood water delayed some of the 
necessary materials needed for con- 
struction. Sand, gravel and cement 
were hardest to obtain. Bad weather 
also played a big part in the delay of 

All the concrete work on- the build- 
ing is nearly done with approximately 
90 percent completed. A part of the 
basement floor has yet to be poured. 

At present there are about twelve 
bricklayers working and signs of a 
beautiful buildiing are near. The roof- 
ers started work laying the roof last 

Angles, window frames, and glass 
blocks are already on the job although 
the glazed tile is not on hand as yet, 

March 1 was given as the earliest 
possible completion date for the build- 
ing by the forman. 


Aline Wilhite Named 
Head Cheerleader 

Aline Wilhite, veteran sophomore 
cheerleader, was named head college 
cheerleader in balloting by the student 
council September 20. 

Associate cheerleaders chosen in- 
clude Phyllis Stover, sophomore; and 
Helen Gochis, Patti Patton, and Pa- 
traicia Ann Simmons, freshman. 

All cheerleaders are chosen by the 
council, under rules of the student 
body organization, and may be re- 
moved for cause by vote of the stu- 
dent council. 

Juco Enrollment Reaches 140; 
Men Outnumber Women 2 to 1 

There will be good hunting for the 
women at ACJC this fall, with the 
men outnumbering them almost 2 to 1. 
There was a total enrollment of 140, 
with 89 men and 51 women at noon 

The freshmen also loom large com- 
pared to the sophomores. There are 
90 freshmen and 43 sophomores, plus 
7 special students. 

College Bookstore 
Will Save Pennies 
For All Jucos 

Something new has been added to 
the junior college. This year the col- 
lege office installed a new idea to 
help the students both physically and 
financially, physically by saving the 
students several steps to the down 
town books shops for needed refer- 
ences, and financially in trimmed cost 
of the books. 

Many of the juco students this year 
have purchased their books from the 
college book shop located in room 3 
behind the office. In the past years 
only used books were sold, the books 
used previously by students in their 
respective courses. The students could 
get their old books sold by the shop 
for a percentage of the selling price. 
This year the shop is handling not 
only the usual amount of used books, 
but also a large number of new ed- 

Any gains realized by the book- 
store from the selling of the books is 
placed in a fund to finance school 
projects of the college, Dean K. R. 
Galle explains, but no great gain is 
expected, since prices for new books 
are kept as low as possible in order 
that saving may be made for students. 

The college bookshop was estab- 
lished at the request of the former 
commercial dealer. 

College teachers will attend the 
third annual conference sponsored by 
the the Kainsas Public Junior Col- 
lege Association, October 6, at El-

of only 11 votes, 49 to 38. 

Gaddis was elected president of the 
sophomore class and Cecil Hawkins 
president of the freshman class in 
elections held September 12.

3 Language Clubs 
To Organize Soon 

Three junior college language clubs 
for Spanish, German and French stud- 
ents, are due to organize within the 
next weeks, Miss Anne Hawley, 
modern language instructor, has ann- 
ounced. The purpose of these organ- 
izations is to teach members to speak 
the language more fluently, to learn 
about the countries, and "to have a 
good time." 

The Spanish Club will be first to or- 
ganize Its first meeting was scheduled 
for September 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the 
college clubroom. The German and 
French clubs will begin work early in 

An invitation to all former lang- 
uage students to join, along with stud- 
ents currently enrolled in languages, 
was given by Miss Hawley. 

Beat Dodge City 




Tigers To Face 
Rugged Dodge, 
El Dorado Jucos 

The Bengals will open their West- 
ern division play with one game on 
the road and the other at home, 
against the Dodge City Conqs and 
the El Dorado Grizzlies. Both oppon- 
ents are expected to be very rough 
and the Tigers will have to play a lot 
of good ball to stay in the game. 

The Conquistadores will take the 
field against the Tigers September 28 
on their home grounds. The exact 
strength of the Dodge City squad is 
not yet known but a better than aver- 
age team is anticipated. 

A fairly large number of men ap- 
pear on the Conq roster, but only 7 
of the 39 are returning lettermen 
from last year's efforts. 

The game should be a good one in 
all aspects if the small squad of Tigers 
continue to display the amount of 
hustle as in their other games. 

The next Friday the Tigers will 
meet one of their toughest opponents 
in the El Dorado Grizzlies. Their 34- 
man squad, which can only boast of 
5 lettermen and one transfer from the 
University of Wichita, is rated as one 
of the top juco elevens in the state, 
and should show a lot of top notch 

Bengals To Have 
Big Grid Schedule 

The junior college Tigers opened 
the 1951 football season on the 14th 
of September in the annual Alumni 
game and got in the juco competition 
a week later against the Coffeyville 
Red Dragons. 

The schedule this year pits the 
Tigers against the top elevens in the 
state. A new comer to the list is the 
Tonkawa Mavericks. Nothing is 
known of this juco team but in past 
experiences with the Oklahomans the 
Arks have had rough games.

ology in the senior high school. 

Kahler attended his home-town col- 
lege, Southwestern at Winfield. He is 
a member of Pi Sigma Phi, athletic 
fraternity, and now a new member of 
the local Quarterback Club. The hob- 
bies of Kahler are, very naturally, 
sports and also photography. 

The name Kahler is well known in 
Arkansas City. Dan Kahler's father, 
Arthur "Art" Kahler was a noted ath- 
letic in the Arkansas City senior hig'h 
school, and was a member of the 
school's only state champion basket- 
ball team, during the 1918 season. An 
aunt, the former Miss Carrie Kahler 
was a junior high school instructor in 
J.930's. Pete Kahler, a college sopho- 
more, is a cousin of the new coach. 

Grads Defeat Tigers 
In Annual Battle 

The old men did it again. Showing 
a lot of power in the second Alumni- 
Juco game, the Alumni defeated the 
Tigers 7-0. The only score of the game 
came late in the second quarter when 
Murry Boyles, class of '48, pushed 
over from the 12-yard line.

Arks Crushed by 
Raven Platoons 

The four platoon system of the 
Coffeyville Red Ravens wreaked havoc 
on the juco Tigers at Curry Field, 
Sept. 21 in the season opener of juco 
play for both teams. The final score: 

The Javatowners had net yardage 
of 230 yards, while the Bengals push- 
ed to 161. The larger "teams" proved 
an asset for the Coffeyville eleven, as 
they scored touchdowns in every 

The Arks suffered several small 
injuries in the game, with Jerry 
Garris leaving the game with a bad 
knee injury. The Tigers were also 
minus the services of John Gaddis, 
Ray Potter, and "Hoolie" David who 
were on the sidelines with injuries 
from the Alumni game. 

The game saw the Bengals make 
several marches but the meat on the 
Coffeyville line proved too much and 
the Arks were stopped each time . 
Several good runs were made by 
Tiger backs and the later part of the 
game saw tackle "Bones" Prosser 
carry the ball on several large gains, 
but time ran out and the charge was

A Etude^tt Body 

1. Don't come to assemblies. 

2. If you do come, be late and make 
plenty of noise. 

3. If you attend an assembly, find 
fault with the program and part- 

4. Hold back applause in assembly or 
better, don't clap at all. 

5. Don't accept a place in a program; 
it is easier to critize than do things. 

6. Feel hurt if you are not asked to 
be in a program; if you are asked 
do not attend rehearsals. 

7. If asked by the vice-president to 
give your opinion on the program; 
tell him you have nothing to say, but 
after he leaves tell everyone how 

things ought to be done. 

8. Do nothing more than is absolutely 
necessary, but when other students 
roll up their sleeves and willingly, 
unselfishly use their abilities to help 
matters along, say that the student 
body is run by a clique. 

9. Don't bother about "talking up" 
new programs or getting new talent. 
Let someone else do it. 

10. Stay with your own little groups, 
and whatever you do DON'T part- 
icipate in larger group activities.

Use Junior High Booths 

The voting booths used by junior 
college students in the election of the 
student council president are the 
property of the junior high school, 
and used regularly in elections in that 
school unit, so many collegians should 
have felt perfectly at home with the 
equipment, having used it before.

Club Rooms Grew From 

Above the present day noises of 
ping pong and conversation in the 
junior college still lingers other noises 
of days gone by. What is now a room 
for relaxation and games was once the 
senior high school locker and shower 

But how did the change take place 
for its a long jump from shower room 
to club room ? 

Back in 1942 some genius among 
junior college students i obtained 
permission to remodel and furnish a 
club room in the then vacant shower 

Students went to work with plaster, 
paint, curtains, and soon interest in 
the project grew. Townspeople donated 
a living room suite, a ping pong table, 
records, cards, games, magazines, and 
ping pong balls. 

On March 18, 1942 the club room 
was formally opened by a social held 
in it and high school gym. Music for 
the event was furnished by Bonner 
Ruff's "Noted Men." The proud junior 
college students invited the high 
school seniors, the Board of Education, 
and the faculty. Chief "pushers" of 
the project were: Ivan Upson of the 
Board of Education, Dean K.R. Galle, 
Coach D.C. Stark, and the following- 
students: Dorothy Moody, Neidra 
Waltz, George Sybrant, Bob Morgan, 
Jean Peck, Bill Ledeker, Bob Burton, 
and Bob Howland. 

The club room progressed even far- 
ther when on November 20, 1947 the 
student council voted to install candy 

By the time "another-year-full-of- 
students" rolled by the club room was 
beginning to show its age. On Novem- 
ber 11, 1948 the student council again 
took action and appropiated $50 for 
redecoration and cleaning up. They 
elected Claus Thieson and Kenneth 
Falls as clean up co-chairmen. The 
TAC came through and gave 
help to the project. Again paint smear- 
ed students went to work and by 1949 
the club room had received a "new 

Cluhroom Equipment Paid for 
Ey Candy and Pop Sales 

Equipment for the junior college 
clubroom is purchased from the pro- 
ceeds of the sale of pop and candy 
from the dispenser in tha lounge, and 
wages for the clubroom steviards 
come from the same source. Since 
the income is very limited, particular 
care is required to stretch the funds 
to cover the costs. College students 
may increase their recreational equip- 
ment by giving proper care to that 
which they already have. The college 
student council is in charge of the 
clubi ooms.

Diplomat Is 
Juco Speaker 

Hans Olav, assistant secretary of 
state on public affairs in Norway, 
spoke to the junior college, October 3. 
Mr. Olav, who has lectured exten- 
sively in tht United States, told of 
his native land. Norway's history has 
been influenced a great deal the in- 
ability of the land to produce the 
needs of the people. This has caused 
her people to build up a great shipping 
industry, to go into her great forests 
and bring out wealth, to go to the sea 
in ships and there, bring back another 
wealth, fish and whale oil, he told 

Norway is a democracy with prin- 
ciples of government between those 
principles of England and the United 
States. It's constitution resembles that 
of the United States. There, too, there 
are three branches of government: the 
king and his council, a legislature, and 
the courts. 

"The State supports a church 
but other religions are accepted 
and practiced. The State controls 
and operates the railroads and 
other utillities, but private busin- 
ess is encouraged", Olav said. 
About the dark five years when 
Norway was occupied by Germany, 
Mr. Olav said the loss most suffered 
by the Norwegians was the loss of 
freedom. "Freedom," said Olav, "is 
like air. We don't miss it until it is 
gone and then we gasp for it and 
become terrified." 

The people of Norway must face 
the present world situation with real- 
ity, for Norway is the only North 
Atlantic Pact country with a common 
boundary with Russia, the speaker 
pointed out. 

Born in Norway, Mr. Olav at- 
tended Stavenger College and 
Oslo University. He has traveled 
widely throughout the world as a 
roving foreign correspondent. 
Mr. Olav was liaison officer for the 
Crown Prince of Norway in 1939; 
Norway's Director of Information to 
the United States in 1940; and wa- 
appointed counselor of Embassy in 
1942, in which capacitv he served 
until after World War II. He is the 
author of the following books and 
publications: "With the Crown Prince 
Couple in America," "He Who Laughs 
— Lasts," "Norway," tend "Norway 

Mr. Olav is also a member of the 
Executive Board of the Committee for 
American students to Oslo University 
Summer School. Each summer Oslo

Freshmen Take Required 
Co-operative English Test 

Freshmen have taken the Coopera- 
tive English Test of the American 
Council of Education. It was required 
of all freshmen and covered vocabul- 
ary and reading comprehension. The 
purpose of the test was to discover 
weaknesses of the students so that 
schools can adjust their programs to 
these needs. Scores made by Arkansas

thus increasing the bond of friend- 
ship and understanding between Nor- 
way and the United States. 

The junior college Tiger tennis and 
track teams came home last spring 
from the state meets with several 
honors to their credit. 

Bill Neal, sophomore on last year's 
cinder squad, was the only Tiger en- 
try in the state meet. Bill captured 
second place in the javelin event. 

The tennis squad, coached by Ray 
Judd, again was victorious in the 
state meet. They hold the state 
championship crown as the result of 
first place in the doubles, second place 
in the singles also a close third place 
in the singles competition. 

Jim Thomas and Allen Chaplin com- 
posed the doubles team which drew a 
first round bye then defeated Hutch- 
inson in the semi-finals, 6-1 and 6-2. 
In the finals of the meet the Arks had 
a rough go facing Mercer and Hayden 
of Kansas City. Afted losing the first 
set 4-6 the Arks settled down to drub 
the Kansas Cityans 8-6 and 11-9. It 
was the sixth straight year for Ark 
supremecy in the doubles. 

Larry Penner captured second in 
the singles, dropping two sets to Fo- 
topor^os of Hutchinson. John Ogren 
grabbed third place after losing to 

The Juddmen ended the season un- 
defeated in six individual school mat- 
ches, and the Hutchinson Invitational.

El Dorado Junior College was host 
for the conference and all meetings 
were held in the college buildings. 

The new president of the student 
body, Russell Leach, is the older bro- 
ther of Helen Leach, AG's second wo-

Grid Play Is 
Abandoned for 
1951 Season 

'Football has been abandoned this 
season for the Arkansas City Junior 
College, as was decided by the Board 
of Education at a meeting October 1. 

The team has been undermanned 
during the entire season but has tried 
very gamely to overcome the great 
odds which they were up against. This 
was one of the main factors in their 
step to stop football this year but per- 
haps the decisive factor was the rate 
at which the players were being in- 
jured. After the Dodge City game 
there was not a full team which could 
be fielded without using an injured 
player. The fact that as players tire 
their chances for becoming injured 
are greatly increased and this is the 
situation which faced the Tigers. 

The Tigers hope to resume play 
next year with what they hope will be 
a much larger squad, and will present 
more competition for their opponents. 

Authorities at El Dorado, Tonkawa, 
Garden City, Iola, Independence, and 
Hutchinson were notified of the de- 
ciesion October 2, and the remaining 
games with these schools cancelled. 

That a full athletic program in bas- 
ketball, tennis, track, and golf would 
be continued during the academic year 
was emphasized by Dean K. R. Galle 
and Athletic Director A. L. Curry, 
and Coach W. G. Speer announced an 
immediate beginning of an intramural 
basketball program to fill the ath- 
letic gap. 

Dodge Romps 
Bengals 73-0 

The powerful Dodge City Junior 
College Conqs downed the Arkansas 
City Tigers September 28 by a score 
of 73-0, at Dodge City. 

The injury-ridden Bengals fell 
before the power house, and the 
Arks came out of the fracas with 
several bad injuries. Nearly every 
member of the squad had received 
some type of a battle scar. 
The Conqs scored in every quarter 
against the Arks. During the game 
the Arks hit hard and challenged the 
larger foes several times near the 
goal line but penalities proved too 
much aginst the Bengals at the wrong 

Oliver Presented 
Radio, Pajamas 

John Oliver, who received a serious 
eye injury in the Dodge City game, 
September 28, is confined to room 213 
in the Memorial Hospital here in Ark 
City, but he has a new portable radio 
and some new pajamas, gifts of the 
student body, to keep him company. 

John played at end, quarterback, and 
center in the game with Dodge City 
before the injury sent him to the side- 
lines. He played a top-notch brand of 
ball at all of the positions before 
being forced to the bench, and says 

he doesn't remember being hit in the 
region of the eye during the game, but 
that it started bothering him in the 
third quarter. 

A drive sponsored by fellow players 
for the donations of funds by students 
made possible the gifts. The radio was 
presented by Coach "Bunt" Speer and 
three representatives in time for John 
to hear the opening game of the World

Intramural Cage 
Play Planned 
For Collegians

designed to take up the slack left by 
the cancellation of remaining football 
games and to provide athletic activity 
to all college men on a voluntary 
basis, was announced by W. G. "Bunt" 
Speer, October 2, immediately after 
the decision to abandon football was 

Intramural basketball has gotten off 
to a good start thus far, as 27 players 
have shown their interest in the pro- 
ject, Speer said Monday. 

A division of several teams will 
make up a league, which •will be 
divided into two sections, one to play 
in the afternoon and the other at 
night. A team or two from the high 
school might be entered to give them 
practice and to increase the competi- 
tion for the Juco fives. 

All junior college boys interested in 
varsity basketball are urged by Coach 
Speer to sign up for the intramural 
ball and receive a lot of good experi-

Sixteen Scholarship Awards 
Announced by Clubs, School 

Sixteen $50 scholarships, sufficient 
to cover all enrollment costs for the 
average junior college student, have 
been awarded to seven juco freshmen 
and nine sophomores from among a

today their choices, the veterans' 
organizations narking four each and 
the civic clubs two each. 

For the first time this year, the 
Junior College itself is awarding 
scholarships. These go to the high 
ranking stud.nts of the 1951 freshmen 
class and the 1951 graduating class

While roaming around the basement 
the other day your reporter decided to 
get nosey and go hunting in lockers to 
find what might be found for a laugh 
or two. 

A piece of "untainted" information 
which might be passed along, first is 
that there are 133 junior college lock- 
ers, 49 of which are locked. Twenty 
of these miniature closetts are with- 
out locks of any kind. Sixty-four locks 
but at present these are catching rust, 
and are not in use; they are just 
hanging locked on the handles. This 
happens to be the reason this reporter 
found out all this secret info. 

Contents of several of th,ese of 
these unlocked lockers proved very 
interesting. For instance on the door 
of locker 30 hangs a trio of the hot- 
test pin-ups to be had. And somehow 
someone had dinner in number 62, but 
forgot to wash the dishes and throw 
away the dinner napkins. An un- 
claimed navy top coat occupied locker 
number 12. 

The owners of 629 are real staunch 
Oklahoma A. & M. cage fans, and 
why not one of the renters has a 
cousin playing for the "Aggies". Mir- 
rors were found in 629, 62, 638, and 
641. Pete Kahler has his magic show 
under cover in locker 42. 

Worst of all was number 43, that 
was a "boobie trap" equal to, if not 
worse than, "McGee's Hall Closet."

It seems that the young folk of one 
of the Ark City churches had a gath-

an outdoor recreational meeting. One 
of the girls suggested going wading 
and proved she was not bluffing by 
removing her shoes and stockings and 
actually going into the water. 

Then it happened — how we'll never 
know. It could be that the sight of 
running water made her dizzy, but 
whether her foot slipped or whether 
somone pushed her is not known. 

Whatever the cause, she really got

Student Council 
To Sponsor 
Food Booth 

An new fund raising idea has been 
adopted by the junior college student 
council, a food booth to be held during 
the 20th annual Arkalalah celebration 
here in Arkansas City. 

Funds from the endeavor are to be 
used to sponsor the junior college 
student social and activities program. 
Since the remainder of the football 
schedule has been cancelled, and the 
only means of support for the pro- 
gram abandoned, the council chose 
this means to finance the activity it 
sponsors during the school year. 

Russell Leach, president of the 
council, named committees and chair- 
men as follows: Melba Reser, public- 
ity; Dorothy Slaven, food; Don Mit- 
chell, equipment; Charles Heffner, 
building of the stand; Henrietta 01- 
vera, decoration. Pauline Hall is in 
charge of personnel. 

Students who have already stated 
that they plan to work in the stand 
during the day are Lyda Vickery, 
Christine Laingor, Lawrence Stover, 
Gene Scroggins, Pat Branch, Danny 
Spangler, Verlma Howarth, Bob War-

When shallow critics denounce the 
profit motive inherent in our system of 
private enterprise, they ignore the 
fact that it is an economic support of 
every human right we possess and 
without it, all rights would disappear.

Ghosts Of Arkalalahs Past 
To Appear Oct. 30-31 

Above Ark City the sky is a bril- 
lant blue, a few clouds only make the 
sky a little bluer. Against this back- 
ground of blue the red, white, and blue 
"welcome" signs, and the orange and 
black streamers announce Arkalalah 
Below on the street the crowd, excited 
and awaiting, mills noisily among the 
booths, the stores and carnival. 

Off Summit Street a smaller crowd 
is gathering. Her majesty Queen 
Alalah is assending her royal throne 
in preparation to her triumphant ride 
through the town. 

Around the queen, her procession 
is also getting ready. School children 
and adults are climbing aboard floats, 
and the bands are assembling. In front 
of the auditorium-gym the senior high 
band and pep club are lining up to 
move out announcing to all that the 
queen is coming. 

Inside the auditorium it is quiet and 
deserted, but, even yet, sounds of the 
gala night before linger, for the 
ghosts of Arkalalah XX are reviewing 
the ceremonies. 

Not only are the ghosts of Arkala- 
lah present, the ghosts of the previous 
years are here too. It seems that this 
year these ghosts of the past falls 
were brought back from the land of 
memories to take Arkansas Citians on 
a trip down the road of memories. 

The high school orchestra can be 
heard beginning the program and 
hushing an impatient crowd with 
"Harvest Festival". As the curtain 

arises the ghosts greet the season 
with "Ode to Autumn". Then still 
dancing and singing they go on their 
way through "Down Memory Lane" 
in their salute to the "Festivals of 

Suddenly a hush falls over the hall; 
the ghosts holds their breaths as they 
remember the excitment of this mo- 
ment. The echoes of the orchestra 
playing "The Loveliest Night of the 
Year" brings "The Festival of Today." 
The silence almost becomes reverent 
as the crown is placed on the ghost of 
Queen Alalah XX. 

As the homage to Her Majesty dies, 
the ghosts, again dancing and singing 
forecast the events that are happening 
on the street outside, as they promise 
"There's Going To Be a Great Day" in 
"The Festival of Tomorrow." 

Then happy and contented with 
themselves they invite the other 
ghosts to stav and attend th ir Ghost 
Cornation Ball as they thrill out "It's 
a Grand Night for Singing" and the veil clos r s on Arkalalah XX.

Future Teachers 
Organization Is 
Formed in Ark City 

A chapter of the Future Teachers 
of America was formed October 16, 
under the sponsorship of Howard W. 
Park, instructor in education, and Miss 
Mary Margaret Williams, president 
of the Arkansas City Teachers As- 
sociation. The purpose of this organ- 
isation 'is to give its members a 
broader and more workable know- 
ledge of teaching as a profession. 
This organization is nationwide and 
is affiliated with the state and nation- 
al education associations. 

The group hopes to receive its 
charter and install its officers during 
National Education Week, November 
11 to 17. Dorothy Slaven has been 
elected president and Mrs. Helen Kirk 

All members of the student body 
interested in teaching are invited to 
become members of this group. 

Other members of the chapter are 
Mary Whaley, Gerry Bartlett, Frances 
Blenden, Barbara Upson, Pauline 
Hall, Lyda Vickery, Mary Edith 
Probst, and Irma Wittenborn. 


Gams and Menefee 

Some local boys attending college 
elsewhere are doing all right in sports. 
Bob Hadike is playing freshman foot- 
ball at Wichita University. Mike Ire- 
land is playing ball at Ottawa. 

Jim Johnson, John Ogren, and Allen 
Chaplin have all recently been home. 
Johnson, basketballer on last years 
team, was home on furlough from the 
Air Force. But has already returned 
to cadet school for further training. 
Ogren and Chaplin have been back 
over several weekends from K-State. 
Both boys have been invited out for 
basketball at the college by head 
coach Jack Gardner. 

Intramural basketball is now under 
way and every so often a good laugh 
comes from someone. It was under- 
stood that Jerry Davis was wanted in 
the health room by a certain party the 
other day, and it wasn't for his health. 

Arkalalah practice and the impend- 
ing vacations are inexticably mixed 
up with the intramural basketball 
schedule, and the result is a headache 
for all concerned. No one's fault. Just 
too many people and activities for the 
space and time. 

George Lemon 17-year-old, 180 lb. 
halfback for El Dorado Junior College 
made the news in a big way last week. 
It seems George slept a little to long 
the day of the Grizzlies game with 
Hays and missed the bus. After look- 
ing throughout El Dorado for a ride 
without any luck he was finally flown 
to Hays and arrived there just thirty 
minutes before game time. 

College cheerleaders are not letting 
the lack of intercollegiate competition 
dull their noise-raising capacities while 
the off-season is upon us. Though 
their opportunities to develop by act- 
ual practice before the throngs of 
sports fans has temporarily disap- 
peared with the cancellation of foot- 
ball games, the gals are improving 
their techniques of crowd rousing by 
regular workouts under the direction 
of Ray Judd, their director, and Aline 
Wilhite, Head cheerleader. 

Independence voters will go to the 
polls Novembers 27 to render the ver- 
dict of the public on a proposed 
$1,250,000 school bond issue. The pro- 
posal calls for an 11-acre plant on a 
40-acre campus, a new name, "Inde- 
pendence Community College," and 
adoption of the 6-4-4 plan of educa- 
tion. The latter plan would put the 
junior and senior years of hij^h school 
in the same organization as the col- 
lege. The plan was considered here 
several years ago, but never actually 
put in force. 

Big Week for 
Western Juco 
Grid Squads 

This may prove to be the most im- 
portant week of football in the West- 
ern Division as Garden City and Hut- 
chinson meet Friday. Garden City will 
be playing for a championship or sure 
tie when these teams clash in a Kan- 
sas Juco Western Division game Fri- 
day at Garden City. 

Garden City will be playing its 
last league game. The Busters 
were once heavily favored over 
Hutchinson on the basis of a 52-7 
victory over the Tonkawa team 
which had played Hutchinson to 
a 6-6 tie. However, a Blue Dragon 
team which was back up to full 
strength for the first time since 
the season opener, crushed Dodge 
City 53-0 Friday to regain both 
confidence and prestige. Garden 
City defeated Dodge City 21-0, 
October 5. 

El Dorado is still very much in the 
title fight. The Grizzlies would tie for 
the crown by winning the remaining 
games if Garden City beats Hutch- 
inson, and take it if th^ Dragons 
upset Garden Citty. 

Western Division teams have 
made very good showings so far 
as they have won four games, lost 
one and have tied one with out- 
of-state opponents. They also have 
eight wins, three losses and a tie 
with non-league rivals. El Dorado 
and Dodge have a chaice to im- 
prove these standings Friday with 
Dodge City entertaining McCook, 
Nebraska, while EI Dorad > is 
host to the Independence Pirates 
of the Eastern Division.

Visit to City 

"Blood for our fighting men", is 
the slogan of the junior college stu- 
dent council as it sponsors the visit of 
the Red Cross bloodmobile, November 
29 and 30, and student officers have 
been working for the last two weeks 
to sign up college students and faculty 
members for the event. 

Raymond Cockrum, sophomore rep- 
resentative on the council, is chair- 
man of the student committee, and is 
assisted by Margaret Dempsey, a 
frosh representative, Russell Leach, 
student council president, has an- 

■'The blood bank of the Red Cross 
needs volunteers that are willing to 
give blood to replenish the supply", 
Mil E. T. Lindsay, chairman of the 
local Red Cross board, points out. 
"There is no way to get blood except 
from healthy able-bodied and willing 
people. This is a need that should not 
be neglected. Many people hesitate 
a^out visiting the bloodmobile be- 
cause they do not fully understand 
how paiiuess the process is". As- 
si ranee is given by Mrs. Lindsay that 
thcr > will be no more discomfort con- 
nected with it than would be in tha 
case of a sight pin prick. 

At least 330 pints of blood are 
needed from the Arkansas City area 
at this time. The bloodmobile will 
be stationed at the V. F. W. building. 

Appointments for the donation 
should be made in advance in the 
school office .Donors must be at least 
18 years old. Those between the ages 
of 18 and 21 must have the consent 
of a parent or guardian, unless th y 
are married. The cards for this pur- 
pose can be obtained from the office 
or from Ray Cockrum. 

"Students having appointments as 
donors will be excused from classes 
if necessary. Every eligible student 
in junior college is urged to part- 
icipate in this great work," Cockrum

On October 30 a crown was placed 
on the head of a junior college co-ed. 
This crown not only made her Queen 
Alalah XX but gave her the highest 
civic honor a girl in Arkansas City 
can hope for. 

As Queen Alalah she represents 
the junior college in the annual fes- 
tivity and also youth and beauty, and 
the entire spirit of Arkalalah. 

As she lays aside her queenly duties 
and once more picks up her scholastic 
duties, Tiger Tales offers her its sin- 
cei*e congratulations. 

Hats off to Bonnie Lord, Queen 
Alalah XX!!

"Forecast for today and tomorrow 
is cloudy and colder with possible 
rain, snow, hail, and high winds." 
This is a typical forecast you hear 
everyday on the radio. The weather 
affects everyone, and sometimes we 
feel crushed under the rain or with 
the heat. 

The weather affects our health in 
the warm summer months, in the 
nippy fall months and the 1-o-n-g, 
dark and cold winter months. Yeh, 
in the springtime too, when a young 
man's thoughts turn to love. 

Recently the weather around us has 
been rather of the bad nature, cold, 
wet slushy and sometimes in the form 
of a hard round object commonly 
known as the snowball. The cloudy 
skies also have very recently turned 
to a baby blue and the weather a 
little warmer and more pleasant for 

Every once in a while the weather 
man is off his rocker, but he forecasts 
the weather correctly more times than 
he judges it wrong. Modern equip- 

Hershey Says Advantage 
Is With Men Who Take Test 

Sixty-three per cent of the 339,000 
students who took the Selective Ser- 
vice College Qualification Tests last 
spring and summer made a score of 
70 or better, Major General Lewis B. 
Hershey, Director of Selective Service, 
reported November 1. He said a furth- 
er breakdown of the results of the 
former tests would be available with- 
in a short time.. 

The new series of tests will be 
given Thursday, December 13, 1951, 
and Thursday, April 24, 1952, by the 
Educational Testing Service of Prince- 
ton, N. J., at more than 1000, different 
centers throughout the United States 
and its territories, including Arkan- 
sas City Junior College. The blanks 
may be obtained by the registrant at 
the local board office at Winfield. 

General Hershey stressed the impor- 
tance of all eligible students taking 
the test, and indicated that those who 
do not have test score results in their 
cover sheets may have a "very diffi- 
cult time indeed" in convincing their 
local boards that they should be de- 
ferred as students. 

Application blanks for the Decem- 
ber 13, 1951 test must be postmarked 
not later than midnight, Monday, No- 
vember 5, 1951. Applications for the 
April 24, 1952 test must be postmark- 
ed not later than midnight, March 10, 

To be eligible to apply for the test, 
General Hershey pointed out, a stu- 
dent must: 

(1) Intend to request deferment 
as a student; (2) be satisfactorily 
pursuing a full-time college 
course; (3) must not previously 
have taken a Selective Service 
College Qualification Test. 
Congress, in the 1951 amendments 
to the Universal Military Training 
and Service Act, declared that ade- 
quate provision for national security 
requires maximum effort in the fields 
of scientific research and development 
and the fullest possible utilization of 
the nation's intellectual resources; it 
authorized the President to provide 
for the deferment of any or all cate- 
gories of persons whose activity in 
study is found to be necessary to the 

ment today is the means of interpreta- 
tion, as well as many other items, 
such as the stars, the moon, and the 
records of the past. 

Colds which often appear about 
this time of the year are a good si°-n 
for the weatherman to use to predict 
that winter is in sight. Yes, the 
weather has a real bearing on vour 
life and mine too. Snifffft!— F.M. 

maintenance of the national health 
safety or interest. 

The criteria for deferment as a 
student is either a satisfactory score 
(70) on the Selective Service College 
Qualification Test or satisfactory rank 
in class (upper half of the freshman 
class, upper two thirds of the sopho- 
more class, upper three fourths of the 
junior class). 

General Hershey remarked that 
when the Selective Service college de- 
ferment plan was first announced last 
spring, objection was heard that the 
plan gave preferred treatment to the 
comparatively small number of "bright 
boys" who could afford to go to col- 
lege. He said he believed that vir- 
tually all of the opposition on this 
ground has been dissipated, since 
thei'e is now a general understanding 
of the fact that the purpose of the 
plan is to select those most fitted to 
pursue college educations, and that 
a large proportion of college students 
are "working their way through col- 
lege", either partly or wholly. He 
cited a recent survey made by the 
United States Office of Education 
which showed that fewer than 25 per 
cent of college students are solely 
dependent upon their parents. 

"We are faced with an emergency 
that many experts predict will last 
perhaps 10 to 20 years," General Her- 
shey said. "We must, therefore, think 
in long-range terms, in developing 
plans to provide an adequate supply 
cf highly skilled manpower. I believe 
the country is aware that it is logical, 
in deferring students in the national 
interest, to defer those with demon- 
strated abitily, instead of gambling 
on those with lower capacity." 

General Hershey explained that 
the intent of Congress was that 
these students should be deferred 
fnlv until they have ct>mp] ted 
their college training. 'Deferment' 
i"es.ns that a registrant shall have 
his service delayed or postnoned 
until h» completes his <~du"ation. 
It is hv it'> means an outright 
ex^motio - '". 

Th« 1952 Amendments to th° Uni- 
versal Militarv Training and Service 
Act provide that any registrant who 
was in a deferred classification on 
June 19, 1951, or who was there- 
sfter placed in a deferred classification 
shall remain liable for training and 
c-o rv jr» P un til he reaches the age of 
35. Therefore, a n y registrant de- 
ferred now as a student will be re- 
ouired. if nhysicallv fit, to serve two 
vears in the armed forces sometime 
before he becomes 35.

Concert Group ALALAH XX 
Presented in 

Pay Assembly 

The New York Concert Ensemble, 
under the sponsorship of the senior 
high and college music departments, 
presented a fine program on the after- 
noon of October 7, to a combined high 
school and juco group, in special pay 

The ensemble was composed of 
William McCully, bass-baritone; Litia 
Namoura, an Oriental and Spanish 
dancer; Stuart Fastofsky, violinist; 
Caryl G. Bergman, soprano; and Geo- 
rge Fiore, pianist. 

The program was divided into seven 
presentations. "Music of Yesterday" 
featured Miss Bergman and Mr. Mc 
Cully in duets, "Love Me Tonight" 
from "Vagabond King" and "May- 
time" from "Sweethearts". 

Miss Namoura presented "Oriental 
Fantasy", which consisted of three 
dances. Following this Fastofsky play- 
ed a polonaise. 

The Spanish Fiesta was perhaps 
the most pictuhesque number of all. 
Miss Namoura, dressed in a white 
ruffled formal with yellow scarf about 
her shouldersj danced "Malaguena", 
giving a beauiful interpretation, ac- 
cented by her castanets. Fastofsky 
played a Spanish dance, and Miss 
Bergman and Mr. McCully sang "The 
Toreador Song", portraying the part 
of a toreador and his lady fair. 

The musical comedy selection, 
"David and Goliath," was effectively 
presented by McCully to conclude the 
sixth section. 

As the final number the entire group 
took part in excerpts from "Kiss Me 
Kate". Piano and violin accompanied 
Miss Bergman for "So In Love With 
You Am I"; the duet "Wunderbar", 
by Miss Bergman and Mr. McCully; 
"Brush Up on Your Shakespeare", by 
the ensemble. 

An evening performance vas also 
given to a small but eppreciative 
audience. — B.A.T. 

Oliver's Doctor Says 

"No Reading"; John Withdraws

who received an eye injury in the 
Dodge City — Ark City football game. 
is up and at 'em again. John sees 
okay now and returned to work at 
the local meat packing company last 

He plans to again enroll in junior 
college at the beginning of the second 
semester. His doctor's orders not to 
read prevented his return at this time.

Night School 
Draws Adults 

Between 65 and 70 adults are en- 
rolled this year in the tenth college 
night school program for out-of-school 

Dean K. R. Galle and Carl Hollman, 
director, are responsible for setting up 
these classes. General vocational sub- 
jects are supported by the State Vo- 
cational Board, while the other com- 
merce cources are operated by student 
fees. No college credit is received for 
any of the vocational cources but spec- 
ial arrangements will be made if the 
credits are desired for the commerce 

A wide variety of material is being- 
offered. The commercial cources are 
Spanish, taught by Miss Anne Haw- 
ley, accounting, by Barney Getto, typ- 
ing and shorthand by Dale Hanson. 

Vocational subjects include clothing, 
taught by Mrs. Nelle Juneman, and 
assisted by Mrs. Forrest Livingston; 
home furnishing, by L. A. Chaplin; 
blueprint reading, by McKinley 
Ghramm; and carpentry, by L. Bow- 

The night school group is made up 
of both men and women, ranging in 
age from 20 up, who are employed 
during the day as homemakers or in- 
dustrial workers. They are enrolled in 
these night classes because of interest 
in a specific field or because of a de- 
sire of additional training.

Fifteen Men 
Answer Initial 

Basketball Call 

Coach "Bunt" Speer made the first 
official call for the varsity basketball 
squad Monday, Nov. 5, and was an- 
swered by a turnout of 15 players. 
Three or four men are expected to 
make a bid later on, but are now 
working . 

Three veterans of last year's 
team are all that are back, but 
they should all help a great deal. 
Those returning lettermen are 
Larry Penner, John Gaddis and 
Fred "Parrot" Menefee. None of 
these three were honored by an 
all-star selection last year but 
Ark City did place Allen Chaplin 
on the All-State five. 
Besides the lettermen others from 
Ark City are Frank Baker, Robbin 
Beck, Jim Roberts, Bill Austen, Dick 
Eustice, Cecil Hawkins, and David 

Those from other cities or schools 
include Jerry Garris, former Bulldog 
regular and transfer from Kansas 
State College; Raymond Potter and 
Gerald Davis, both all-state high 
school players from Winfield; Leo 
Johnson, three-year letterman from 
Dexter; and Don Bowman from Se- 
attle, Wash. 

The squad is facing a tough 18- 
game schedule this season but little 
is known at the present of their 
chances with any of their opponents. 

Intramural Program 
Dropped for Season 

The intramural basketball program, 
planned to fill the gap after the drop- 
ping of football, has been abandoned 
because of lack of interest and because 
too many college men are working 
at the hours available for practice. 
Greater interest i n varsity 
basketball proved to be the only 
tangible outcome of the proposed 
program. No further attempt to 
organize intramural ball is ex- 
pected this year, due to the ap- 
proach of the regular season. 

College Soci?l Friday 

A college social will be held Friday 
at 8 p. m. in the little gym of the 
high school, Willard Wright, chair- 
man of the social committee, announc- 
ed Tuesday. 

Rain, sleet, snow, and the freezing 
weather caused many Juco students 
to wonder what had happened to the 
stand they were to work in Arkalalah. 

Erected Tuesday afternoon by Bill 
Austen, Galen McLaughlin, Charles 
Heffner, Gary Smith, Bob McKee, Ted 
Purvis, Nordan Young, and Harold 
Meece, under the supervision of Mc- 
Kinley Ghramm, it was torn down and 
hauled away by Danny Spangler, Bob 
Warender, Charles Heffner, and P. 
M. Johnson late Wednesday morning 
when it became apparent that opera- 
tion would be at a loss. 

The only casualty was a skinned 
shin by Mr. Johnson as he slipped on 
the curb with an armful of lumber. 

The Student Council extended their 
thanks to Woods Lumber Company, 
for the use of the lumber, and to all 
those students who had volunteered to 

An interesting float in every Ark- 
alalah parade is the one which ends 
the procession. Every year for the 
past four or five years this position 
has been filled by the Flint Hills Coon 
Hunters. An interesting note was that 
they achieved a new goal in the recant 
night parade. They were followed by 
three floats and really surprised some 
of the crowd — minus the coon. 

Four local school girls are being 
shadowed day and night. They are 
Phyllis Gilmore, Ann Dore, Betty 
Hardiman, and Celeste Dore. 

It seems as though the four 
turned western during the Ark- 
alalah celebration and ro 'e the 
Maurer-NVur' r "Rodeo" float in 
the parade, passing out bubble 
gum and GUNS. FBI members 
have been checking on possibilities 
of a revolution. 

The other day in 8th hour psychol- 
ogy class several members had been 
late getting to class. Several had also 
almost fallen asleep. 

As the class was dismssed and 
passed out the door Mr. Day called 
the attention of several of the stu- 
dents ^o a joke ^iiich appeared on 
the bulletin board in room 4. We

Faculty members of the junior col- 
lege are encouraging students to be 
more regular in attendance at regu- 
lar college assemblies. The atttend- 
dance this year so far has been 
pretty good, but several of the stu- 
dents are missing too often. 

Back in high school, whenever the 
bulletin called for an assembly, time 
was taken from one of the regular 
classes and everyone had to go or be 
counted absent from class. A year 
or more has passed and now we are 
sophomores in college or have entered 
college for the first time and the scene 
has changed somewhat from what it 
was in high school. But even so, at- 
tendance at assemblies is expected. 

Rewards are given to the students 
who have perfect attendance in as- 
semblies. Those who miss three times 
or more receive no credit points, and 
are subject to further reduction of 
credit points. 

Other advantages come to the "reg- 
ular" student and to the student body 
as well. Unity and a feeling of fel- 
lowship develop from doing things to- 
gether, and college students find their 
greatest gain from college life comes 
from experiences shared. Students 
ov e it to themselves as well as to 
their fellows, to participate, not only 
in assemblies, but in games, parties, 
socials and school projects. 

Students can very well start with 
regular assembly attendance which 
will lead to further participation in 
other- assemblies. 

The mobile X-ray unit of the tuber- 
culosis association will visit Arkansas 
City on December 6, and will be sta- 
tioned in front of the Auditorium- 
Gym. All students are urged to have 
a free X-ray taken. It should be point- 
ed out that the high school and junior 
college age groups are the most sus- 
ceptible to this di'ead disease. 

When the tuberculosis association 
was first started the idea was to affect 
a cure by giving rest to the victim. 
Later the idea began to grow that 
perhaps prevention is the wiser ap- 
proach to the problem of dealing with 

The work of the tuberculosis as- 
sociation began functioning in Ark- 
ansas City in 1924 with the setting up 
of an open air school which was 
located on the grounds of the Lincoln 
School. The building was one room 
and included all grades. The windows 
were always kept open at the top and 
the temperature was kept between 50 
and 55. The students were taken from 

Unit to City 

the homes where the tendency was 
toward tuberculosis. 

Each child was required to dress 
very warmly, which included the wear- 
ing of leggins and an outer coat. 
Special care was given by providing 
the pupils with lunches and rest per- 
iods as well as milk served at 2 p.m. 
every clay. Their transportation was 
furnished by a special bus. 

Now the emphasis is put upon early 
discovery of the disease. The oppor- 
tunity for an early discovery is made 
possible by the visit of the X-ray 
mobile unit, which comes here every 
other year. 

This work is made possible by the 
sale of the Christmas Seals. Beginning 
November 19, the Christmas Seals will 
be offered here to help this cause. 

"We hope", Principal Harold Loucks 
and head of the Ar'k City tuberculosis 
association for 25 years says, "that 
the people of Arkansas City will sup- 
port this work as well or better than 
they have in the past." 

A cookbook and a bank book are 
very helpful in the course in marr'ge. 

There undoubtedly are times when 
a yes-man has to hold his no's. 

The wanderer has returned. Re- 
cently Larry Penner, steward of the 
clubrooms, brought the radio-phono- 
graph back from the shop where it's 
been all summer. 

The Student Council bought this 
machine last year and it lasted about 
three weeks before someone attempted 
to steal the radio and broke it. The 
Student Council ordered tthe repairs 
and the work has been completed so 
that students can enjoy it during their 
spare hours again. 

The records are those left from last 
year, donated by Joe Carey. Anyone 
h_i\ing spare records may feJ free to 
bring them to the clubrooms. The 
phonogaph plays any size record or 
any speed. 


"Beg pardon, but aren't you one

Dr. Schwegler Henrd 
In College Assembly 

"There is within every human be- 
ing a thread which will lead him to 
the top." So stated Dr. R. E. Schweg- 
ler, the city school clinical psycholog- 
ist, when he spoke before the juco 
students in regular assembly. 

Dr. Schwegler gave a brief discus- 
sion on growing up and learning to 
face life. The importance of friend- 
ship for succes was stressed. "Success 
in life depends upon making other 
people like us, "Schwegler said. 

Open discussion was held in which 
Dr. Schwegler answered questions 
from the floor.

R. Galle, local test administrator, 
urges students to take the test, as 
there is no harm in doing so. The 
only other way to be deferred is by 
being in the upper 50 per cent of their 
class if they are freshmen, the upper 
two-thirds if they are sophomores, or 
the upper three-fourths if they are

Tigers Start '52 
Cage Season 
Against Pirates 

Only one short week lies between 
the Tigers and their first basketball 
game with the Independence Pirates, 
Dec. 7. Independence has won the east- 
ern division the last two years, but 
are suffering from losses in starting 
players. Their only returning regular 
is Jim Kirkendoll who made the all- 
conference selections last season. 

The Arks have only one returning 
regular also, John Gaddis, but are 
backed by two top notch players from 
Winfield, Raymond Potter, and Gerald 
Davis. The Bengals may have a slight 
edge in the fact they have had three 
extra weeks of practice over Indepen- 
dence but it is not enough to notice. 
The Arks record with Independence 
last year was one win and a loss, 
while both games were very close. 

Second on the list and also their 
second home game of the season, are 
the Coffeyville Red Ravens who invade 
Arkansas City December 11. 

The starting line up for the Bengals 
has not been released by Coach "Bunt" 
Speer as yet, but the fifteen players 
now making up the first squad are 
John Gaddis, Fred Menefee and Larry 
Penner, all three returning lettermen; 
and Raymond Potter, Gerald Davis, 
Jerry Garris, Bob Beck, Cecil Hawk- 
ins, Frank Baker, Gary Smith, Fred 
Rindt, Jim Roberts, Dick Eustice, Leo 
Johnson, and Bill Austin. 

Second Social of the Year 
Is Held by Junior College 

The second social of the Junior Col- 
lege was held Friday, November 10, 
at 8 p. m. in the junior high girls' gym. 
A varied program was in charge of 
Pete Kahler, who gave some of his 
interesting magic tricks. A piano solo, 
"Nola" and "That Old Piano Roll 
Blues" was played by Mary Whaley, 
who also accompanied Gerry Bartlett 
when she sang two well-received selec- 
tions, "Because of You" and "The 
T ilac Tree". Glenn Burns, accompanied 
by Mrs. Burns, sang a tenor solo, 
"Wandering", and responded with an 
encore, "You Keep Coming Back Like 
a Song". 

The social pail of the evening was 
spent with cards and dancing and at- 
tention to refreshments of pop and 
cooki- s. The social committee headed 
by Willnrd Wright was pleased to see 
that nearly 100 were in attendance. 

Wh n n children act like their parents, 
it's sometimes hard to teach them 
good manners. 

New Juco Mentor Has Wide 
Background in Sports Field 

Dan Kahler, the new assistant 
basketball coach in the junior college, 
is not by any means new to the 
world of sports. Coach Kahler first 
attended high school in Carlisle, Penn., 
where twice he made the all-state 
basketball selections. His last two 
years of high school were spent in 
Toms River, N. J., where he also earn- 
ed the honors of all-state in both 
football and basketball. 

His athletic career was then in- 
terrupted by a two-year hitch in the 
Navy. After receiving his discharge, 
he stalled college at Southwestern 
College in Winfield, from which he was 
graduated in 1950. During his four 
years at Southwestern Kahler made 
quite a name for himself. He won the 
position of end in the CTC all-conf- 
erence selections three straight years 
in football, and bettered this by mak- 
ing the all-conference team four years 

in basketball. He also played four 
years of baseball and three years 
of golf before his graduation. 

Dan played basketball witfc the 
Hesston King Motors in the Kansas 
AAU division in 1950, and was award- 
ed the most valuable player trophy. 
The next year of roundball was spent 
with the Denver Chevrolet team in 
the NIBL league of the AAU. The 
NIBL is the same league which also 
houses the Phillips 66 Oilers. Th • 
highlight of last year, according to 
Coach Kahler, was his trip to South 
America to play in the World Basket- 
ball Championship Tournament, ,in 
which the United States team took 
second place, being beaten by Argen- 

Kahler came to Ark City this fall, 
and besides his coaching is teaching 
four hours of sophomore English 
one hour of biology in the high school. 

Council Okays New 
Jackets for Cheerleaders 

The students council held a meeting 
Friday, November 16, in room 8 to 
discuss the various activities and 
duties of the school that are coming 

Purchase was authorized of new 
jackets for the college cheerleaders. 
These jackets were ordei'ed some time 
ago but were just received. The jackets 
themselves are black with the sleeves 
of a two-color combination of black 
and orange, in the battle jacket model. 
They also have elastic knit cuffs with 
the bottom band in contrasting color. 

Other topics under discussion were 
coming of the bloodmobile, November 
29 and 30 the social being held thit 
evening and the next big social event 
of the year, the Chistmas party.

The 21-year-old corporal enlisted 
in the Air Force on Jan. 11, 1951, and 
took his basic trainink at Lackland 
AFB, Tex. From there, he went to 
clerk-typist school at the Francis E.

Garden City Takes 
Western Title as Juco 


rid Season 



Garden City and Coffeyville were

ze ions, and taking pictures of the 
a tlvities and the persons participat- 
ing, have been suggested.

iMrmt (Christmas 

An approaching sound of merry 
bells and excited shoppers comes each 
year at this time. The warm glow of 
Christmas candles brings a warm 
glow to our hearts and a softer ex- 
pression to our faces. It is fitting 
that we should end and begin each 
year with a feeling of peace and 
happiness toward our fellow man. 

We, the Tiger Tales staff, give each 
of you that traditional "Merry Christ- 
mas and Happy New Year," which 
time will never wear out because it 
is wrapped in sincerity. 

May Santa fill your stockings and 
overflow your hearts with joy.

Students attending the recent Pep 
assembly for the Independence game 
received the four new members of the 
junior college cheerleading staff very 

The appearance of four (goons) on 
the stage might have been guite a 
shock to some in he audience. The 
four athletes were attired in "longies" 
plus a little invention of one of the 
members — a gunny sack. From where 
we were the contest between the two 
groups ended in a landslide for the 

New members cf the cheering staff 
were TheoDora Purvis, Freda Mrefee, 
Johnnine Caddis and Petra Kahler. 
Congrats guys for a swell job and 
being well done too. 

The appearance of Ted and Pete 
also occurred that evening in the col- 
lege game with Independence. John 
and Fred were unable to render ser- 
vices for the evening performance. 

Sisters Under Skin' 
Represents Effort To 
Better Assemblies 

"Sisters Under the S'"in", a one- 
act comedy by Mae Howley Barry 
was presented December 5, for the 
junior college assembly. Ths cast in- 
cluded Patty Patton, Pauline Hall, 
and Walter Mae Andrews. The comedy 
was directed by Miss Virginia Weis- 

The plot concerns four scrub women 
in beauty salon trying to become 
ladies by reading the beauticians 
books. They go through all the usual 
antics of walking with books on 
their heads and bending exercises un- 
til interrupted by the proprietor. 
Finally they all decide to remain them- 
selves, and that their husbands 
wouldn't like them as ladies anyway. 
The play was entertaining and the 
girls are to be congratulated on their 
attempt to make college assemblies 
better. D. C.

A rough part 6t the basketball 
schedule of the Arkansas City Junior 
College Tigers get Well underway Fri- 
day night as th?* Arks take the hard- 
woods against the Hutchinson Blue 
Dragons, followed by five equally 
tough cage opponents. December 18

more the Jucis hit the road to Parsons 
on the 8th of January. 

The Blue Dragons will be the 
Tigers' first Western division foe, Dec. 
14. The Dragons are supported by the 
return of four lettermen from last 
season, and these four are led by Bill 
Huntzinger, an outstanding played 
last year. Others are Robert, M°lville,

strong team but little is known of 
their abilities this early. The Bengals 
split in their two game with Parsons 
last year, winning at home and drop- 
ping a close one on their road tour. 

The Tigers on their first trip of th > 
year Dec. 21, to meet the Pratt Beav-

team with the loss of Bloxim to South-

heig'ht, but not in speed. 

Two days after Christmas find t'" 
Ark City five in perhaps their only 
breatner l-of the current season. Dec. 
27 is the date which has been set for 
the annual alumni game. This shou'd 
be an exciting- game the first half

quickly, and the weight advantage ; s 
not so great as in football, Froceeds 
cf this game go to the quarterba k

..I'm One In Many.." Speaks A 
Student For March of Dimes Drive 

EDITOR'S NOTE: Ruth J. Ellis, a 
senior at the University of Florida, 
was selected first NATIONAL COL- 
the 1952 March of Dimes because she 
typifies the many college students who 
re* use to let polio stand in the way. 
Here is our own account of what polio 
means to a college student and the 
part played by the March of Dimes. 
January is March of Dimes month 
across the nation. 

Greetings from the campus of the 
University of Florida. 

I'm one of tne many Polios going to 
college. Yes, that's what we call our- 

Ruth J. Ellis 

selves- Polios; frequently we refer to 
no;i-polios as AB's — for able-bodies. 

I was completely rehabilitated when 
I left tiie hospital, but just to be sure, 

T \ hi yt ar's contest awards are 
specially designed medals, featiri.ig 
a Time cover etching and a globe of 
t! <> world, wtih the legend, "Current 
Aft'a ; rs Contest." The reverse of the 
medal will I e engraved with "First 

i'.e resented by the Editors of 
Time. 1952. 

A* 1 ards to be presented include 
first nrize to th" student in each class 
securii g the highest score, and one 
awarJ present d for the top score in 
the school, and one for the hi.°;h 
faculty aeore- 

' a-t year''-; v intr rs Russell 
Leach, Jack Dautrich and Joan Flovd. 
J. K. Day collected the faculty prize. 

I decided to return to college- First, I 
went to a little college. I wasn't sure 
I could physically handle a big uni- 
versity. In Septtember of 1950, I 
transferred to the University of Flor- 
ida and will be graduated February 2, 

Because I wear slacks all the time, 
I was frequently asked: "Did you have 
an accident?" 

"No," I'd reply. "I'm a Polio and a 
darn lucky one; if it hadn't been for 
the March of Dimes, I wouldn't be 
standing here today. 

"Does the March of Dimes really 
help that much?" they'd ask. 

Of Course! It helps four out of ev- 
ery five patients buy medical care, and 
very often this covers a period of 
years. Approximately seven and a 
half cents of each dime contributed 
goes directly for patient care of this 
kind. Research come out of the rest. 

"What causes Polio?" someone else 
asks- I tell them it is a virus as elu- 
sive as the quality of happiness. For 
the past 14 years, research made pos- 
sible by the March of Dimes has 
tried to find out what carries this 
virus, what could knock it out, how 
crippling can be reduced. 

People said it was too bad that I 
had polio and I loved them for it be- 
cause I knew their sympathy was sin- 
cere. Sympathy of this kind is the 
most natural thing in the world a:id 
in a large sense it is the emotion that 
makes something like the March of 
Dimes a living, practical force in our 

When I went to the hospital I was 
frantic about the inevitalbe and e- 
normous bills. But I soon found out 
that the National Foundation for In- 
fantile Paralysis was going to give me 
help through the March of Dimes. 

I remembered the times when I 
had given dimes. I never realized the 
so-called bread I had cast upon the 
waters would come back literally 
th< usands-fold. 

After I had spent 2V-> years in the 
hospital, I mad,' a vow to myself. 

ver\ March of Dimes that came 
elcng, I wanted to take a big part in 
it. I didn't have to worry about other 
people taking a big part. Throughout 
our country, every year, people did 
their part. 

You Know — it makes a Polio feel 
good to realize there is so much in- 
terest in helping the fight abainst th s 
so much more this year! Thank good- 
"'s we a*' a free people in the 
United Stattes. '

Following Two 
Weeks Important 
To Juco Cagers 

The next two weeks prove to hold 
four of the toughest games of the 
season for the Tigers, as they par- 
tially enter second round play. 

The Grizzlies from El Dorado, who 
come here Friday, have proven them- 
selves to be one of the top contenders 
for the Western division crown as 
they handed Hutchinson a bitter de- 
fect tv. o weeks ago. They are a very 
high scoring quintet and should prove 
t. be one cf the stiff est rivals to face 
the Tigers this season. 

January 18 and 19 find Dodge and 
Card n City traveling to the Bengals' 
heme court for what could prove to 
be two nights of the best ball to be 
played in this locality this year. Both 
tennis are very good and they are 
definaiely rated two of the better 
rounaball quintets in the stnte. 

The Tigers will invade Coffeyville 
January 22, for the second game of 
the year with that club. The Vrks already seen victory over the 
Easterners once this season but only 
in a hard fought contest, in which 
the scoring was limited.

New Automatic Pre:s 
Now in Operation 

The printing department has re- 
cently receded a new automatic Craft- 
sman Press with a Kluge feeder. 
This type of press automatically con- 
trols ink, picks up paper, feeds it to 
the machine and then t.i.kes it out. A 
bell rings when an imprelssion is 
missed and the machine stops, call- 
ing attention to the error. 

The new press is expected to cut 
the waste of paper by 10 per cent. 
Absence of the human element in 
this automatic production will make 
jobs produced on it more uniform, ac- 
cording to A. F. Buffo, instructor. 

21 Course Changes Planned 

.(Continued from Page 1)_ 
the music department, public school

Ad/anccd courses in modern lan- 
guages are Spanish literature, 3

versation, 2 hours. 

Bengal Cagers Win Four, Drop Two Close 
Tilts In Three Week Hardwood Campaign 

Ark City managed to maintain a 
4 point lead and beat the Parsons 
Cardinals 55-51 at Parsons last Tues. 
By winning the game the Arks now 
have a 4-2 in 25 days of cage play. 

Losses were to Hutchinson and the 
Alumni, both games bsing close. 

Total points scored by the Arks 
to this date now amount to 427 while 
holding their opponents to only 400. 

A last minute jump shot from top 
of the key hole by sophomore guard 
Jerry Garris tied up the game in the 
last five seconds and sent the Arks in- 
to a five minute overtime, with St. 
John's College of Winfield. 

In the over-time Cecil Hawkins pot- 
ted a two pointer on a left hand jump 
s ot, and the Arks managed to out 
play the Johnnies on the floor to main- 
tain a 1 point lead and win the game 

The Arks played the Johnnies on 
even terms throughout the game in 
which the score was tied and changed 
hands many times. A hustling Eagle 
te; m gained on the Arks in the clos- 
ing minutes and tnen took the lead 
491.47. With ten seconds left to play 
the Arks took the ball out of bounds 
and dov, n the floor. 

Arks Drop Beavers 

Taking tae road for the first time 
of the cuvrer.t season the junior col- 
lege Tigers traveled to Pratt for a 
v 'e"t"rn Di\ ision fracas with the 
Pratt Beavers on December 21. This 
was the second league tilt of the 

Religious Theme Presented 
In Christmas Assembly 

An impressive ( hristmas assembly 
was presented on December 19 under 
the directorhip of Miss Virginia 

A religious theme was carried out 
through the entire program. Aline 
Wilhite served as chairman, Audine 
Buckle lead the scripture and of- 
fered the prayer, and G. L. Hinchee 
lead the group in singing, accompanied 
by Mary Whaley. 

Bess Streeter Aldrich's Christmas 
story,"Star Across the Tracks", was 
interpreted by Melba Reser. The con- 
i hiding number was a solo,"0 Holy 
Night", by Gerry Bartlett. 

The organ music heard throughout 
the program was a tape recording 
mad 1 by Allan Maag of music played 
by Gerry Bartlett, so that she actually 
furnished the accompaniment to her 
own solo. Audine Buckle and Betty 
Stockton were in charge of the stage 

season and against a team that is 
always rough on their home court. 
The Bengals returned home later that 
night with a 60-56 win safely tucked 
under their belts. 

Cecil Hawkins, freshman forward, 
played a bang-up ball game for the 
^rks. Rebounding, passing and scoring 
from all angles on the floor. He also 
played a good defensive game. Hawk 
hit fourteen points for third high 
honors in the game. Ray Potter hit 
20 points. 

The boys from AC lead the entire 
game but the Beavers threatened sev- 
eral times during the 40 minute tilt. 
Superior ball handling, rebounding, 
and hustle by guards Gaddis, Garris, 
Beck and forwards David and Baker 
proved more than the Beavers asked 
for. The game ended with the Arks 
in possession of the ball. 

Ark City 78, Parsons 54 

Paced by Potter, the junior college 
Tigers trampled the Parsons Card- 
inals of the Eastern Division 78-54, 
December 18, in the local gym. 

Potter, along with the team-mates, 
racked up the total and seemed as 
though they were ustoppable at the 
baskets. Potter garnered a total of 
39 counters for himself with many 
assists to his credit. The 39 point total 
broke bis old record of 35 by four 
against the equally tall opponents, 
and rebounding ability on the floor 
Teamsters displayed a lot of hustle 

Alumni Trim Bengals 

T'h< j Alumni cagers fr: m ACJC 
proved too much for the Timers on 
Dec. 27 in the second amual affair 
and won 53-41. 

Tigers Bow To Hutch 

Unable to stave off a last minute 
scoring spree, the junior college 
Tigers went down to defeat at the 
h^nds of the Hutchr.son Blue Dra- 
gons 56-51, December 14. 

Ray Potter jumped into the lead 
in the scoring of the Western Division 
teams by pacing th • Tigers wit'^ 1 > 
points. The remainder of the scoring 
teams by pacinf the Tigers with 35 
for the Arks was evenly divide: 1 . 

After leading- the Dragons to the 

last period the Arks seemed to fade 

in the closing minutes, and the salt- 

towners began to out-hustle the Arks.

Progress On 
New Building 

Progress on the building is rapidly 
increasing to the point where is a 
possibility that present juco students 
may have the honor of first attending 
classes in the new building. Workmen 
have had perfect working conditions 
during the past few weeks and pro- 
gress on the structure has been 

The major work on the outside of 
the building is completed, and only 
small jobs around the foundation and 
walls remain for the workmen on the 
exterior. Roofers have been on the job 
again finding and repairing small 
leaks in the roof which are always a 
part of the putting on a new roof. 

The auditorium in the new build- 
ing lies north and south, with the en- 
trance on the south hall near the west 
entrance to the building. 

Rooms on the south side of the 
building on the first floor are near 
completion and will recive paint as 
soon as the electricians are finished 
with the wiring in the different rooms. 

Floors in the north rooms are being 
put in now with the major share being 
completed the later part of this week. 

A part of the north wall of the 
southeastern room is being torn down 
and is to be put up as the permanment 
v, all of cement blocks. 

Work on the floor is to begin as 
soon as the major rough part is com- 
pleted on the first floor. 
A part of the rooms have already been 
laid out on the top floor and floor 
laying is to start soon. 

A part of the tile work has been 
started in the halls on the first floor. 
This work will be completed as soon 
as the painting is finished. 

So there may be a chance that the 
sophomores of '52 will bet to attend 
i few of their classes in thf new nome.

As one semester ends and another

good to be through finals and certain 
classes are now behind. Really t ough

Each year two weeks in January 
are set aside for the "March of 
Dimes". This year because of an ur- 
gent need, the entire month is "March 
of Dimes" month. 

Why was it necessary for an added 
tw i weeks be devoted to this drive ? 
First, 1951 was a hard year for many 
folks. Polio struck hard and fast, 
conquering more victims than ever be- 
fore in history. Second, the American 
public failed to realize the importance 
of the "March of Dimes." They ga . e, 
but not enough. 

We h ive to give more this year 
because of the two reasons above. The 
March of Dimes has many more bills 
t i help pay because of the mwy more 
1951 victims. But what about the 1952 
victims? Each of us should make a 
personal drive and dig into our poc- 
ket*' so that research can be speeded 
up. By giving now we can help those 
who have already fallen in th>> path 
of this monster, and we can help stop 
this waste of our nati »ial health and

In a moment of courage, the junior

extended an invitation to the junior 
college faculty for luncheon. The fac-

no one was poisoned.

wife needed him at home. Finally his 
commanding officer asked, "Do you 
place your wife before your duty to 
your country?" Replied the Pvt. 
"There are 11 million men taking care 
of my country, but as far as I know 
I'm the only one taking care of my 
wife." He got his furlough. 

It was the teen-aged daughter's 
first dance and she desperately want- 
ed an off-the-shoulder frock. Her 
mother felt she wasn't old enough to 
wear anything so sophisticated. Father 
finally settled the heated family dis- 
cussion. "Let her try one on," he 
suggested. "If it stays up — she's old 
enough to wear it."

Juco's Eligible Bachelors 
Handy at Home Tasks 

Leap year is here this year a id 
it's a good thne for all eligible girls 
to start thinking about the bachelors 
around Juco. A sui^ ey has been taken 
by a male Tiger Tales reporter deter- 
mined to help the women arou id 

Three questions were asked. They 
were: "Can you cook?" "Can you sew 
a button on a shirt?" and "Can you 
fix a leaking faucet?" 

Sporting the perfect answers were 

Let's make the Arkansas City Jun- 
ior College's answer to this great need 
"a dime a day til February 1" from 
each of us. Someday, perhaps, we can 
relax from the fear of this dread dis- 
ease, but its up to each of us now. 

Larry Penner, Galen McLauffhlin, 
Frank Baker, Jerry Anglin, Wayne 
Eaton, Danny Spangler, Ted Purvis, 
Ray Corkrum, and Wilbur Kiilblane. 

Those who could cook and sew but 
not fix a leaking faucet were Harold 
Givens, Bill Brooks, Dick Eustice, 
Jack Dautrich, David Brewster, and 
Jerry Van Zant. 

Some were able t) do only on 2 
thii g. Bill Sheldon could fix a leaki ig 
faucet, and Nordan Young could sew. 

It is the reporters hope that this 
survey has been of some good to the 
men as well as the girls. In the repor- 
ter's estimation, there is only one of 
the "perfect" bachelors who could be 
trusted. That would be Raymond Cock- 
rum, who reports that he lived by 
himself for seven years.

These Tigers Go 

While displaying some of the best 
basketball seen on their home court 
in a number of years the Tigers took 
measure of both Dodge and Garden 
City and grabbed tightly on to a share 
of the first place berth in the Western 
division last week-end. 

The Tigers are sharing their lead 
with El Dorado who suffered their only 
loss of the year to the mighty Bengals 
The Arks were set back their only 
time in league play thus far by Hutch- 
inson. The entire standings are as

Bengals Victorious in 3 

Hutchinson, the only team thus far 
to defeat the Tigers in Western divi- 
sion play, will play host to the high 
riding Bengals, Jan 25 in the "salt 
town". The Tigers will be out to re- 
venge their loss earlier, but will have 
a very tough opponent in the lad-; 
from Hutch. 

Feb. 1 and 2 find the Tigers on their 
longest trip of the schedualed season 
in their invasion of Dodge and Garden 
C ity. The Arks edged the Dodge City 
Conqs, 50-49, in a very tough ball 
game on the local court last week-end 
and dropped the Garden City five with 
a thud,62-47. The trip will make or 
break Ark City title hopes. 

In their last home appearence of 
the season, the Tiger quintet will play 
host to the Pratt Beavers Feb. 8. In 
their first contest of the year with the 
Beavers the Arks were successful in 
downing them 60-56. 

All four games will be very import- 
ant to the Tigers if they are to keep 
their present five game winning streak 
and a first place berth in the Western 

Joining the squad for the game w'th 
Hutchinson will be Larry Johnson, 
former Bulldog basketeer and a trans- 
fer from Oklahoma A.&M. He is ex- 
pected to strengthen the Tigger att- 


To Play 1952 Football 

It was decided at the January Board 
of Education meeting to lace the Tig- 
ers back in the gridiron race next 

Football was dropped here this year 
because of the shortage of able-bodied 
men to carry the heavy load of com- 
petition the powerful Kansas junior 
college elevens. 

As yet no definite schedule has been 
released for the coming season. 

Air Officer Discusses 
Opportunities in Navy 

Lt. Finch of Olatha Air Base re- 
cently visited the Arkansas City Jun- 
ior College to talk to students inter- 
ested in Naval Aviation Cadet Train- 

He listed the opportunities and gen- 
eral requirements is two full years of 
college work. 

The Navy advises students to 
remain in school. The average person 
will be worth more to himself and to 
his country, Finch told students. 

The junior college Tigers jumped 
into a tie with El Dorado for the lead 
of the Western Division by defeating 
the Garden City Broncs, 62 to 47, in 
a rough and tumble game that gave 
the ians their money's wort.i from 
start to finish. The game ended with 
Garden putting a press on the locals 
reserves who in the clinch handled the 
game like veterans. 

Garden City jumped into the lead 
at the opening of the game but a fast, 
determined bunch of Tigers came back 
hard and lead at the end of the quar- 

During the game the officals cal- 
led three technical fouls aganist dif- 
ferent Garden City players for dif- 
erent reasons. A fast, hard-rebounding 
Bronze team threatened even in the 
last minutes, and were never out of 
the game until tne gun sounded. 

Rebounding by Patterson, W. Smith 
and Meckert proved an asset for the 
Broncs, and when fouls put the boys 
on the bench Garden hopes went too. 
The Tigers we re playing a better 
brand of ball than the night before, 
a :; d displayed power under the boards 
and on the floor. 

Scoring honors went to Ray Potter 
of me ^_rks with 20 counters. Cecil 
Hawki s was second high witn 15, 
Jerry David garnered 11, and John 
Gaddis hit 10. 

' ar.jkl ratfcerson was high for the 
losers with 11, followed by Ted Blue 
a. id jiarv Deckert with 9 and 8, res- 

Tigers Edge Dodge 50 - 49 

The Tigers clawed past the Dodge 
Cry CoiKiuistadores, Jan. 18, in a 40- 
minute thriller to the end, wining 50 
to 49. 

The locals had one of the coldest 
nights so far this season at the bask- 
ets, hitting only 31 per cent of their 
shots. Out of a possible 74 only 2.'! 
went through. Dodge hit 30 per cent 
of tli ir shots. 

A slow first period ended with the 
score 9 to 8 and the Arks out front. 
in the second quarter the Arks led 
by a mere 1-point margin as tie Conqs 
threatened time and time again. A 
det irmined Tiger squad managed to 
lead at the half way mark, 21 to 20. 

Scoring honors were shared by Ray 
Potter of the Arks and Ronnie Rubin 
of the Conqs, each with 16 points. 

Charlie Smith, Dodge City bif> gun 
managed to get only two fre s i i th- 
first half, hut come out in th" Inter 
«f the game and get four fielders. 
Even S), Ark guard Jerry Garris dis- 
played a good job of defensive work 

on Smith. Smith usually hits around 
20 to 25 points a game. 

The Arks held on a point lead at 
the end of the third quarter once 
again to lead 37 to 36. During the 
last period both teams eacn hit 13 

With a little more than a minute of 
play time left, Ark forward Jerry 
"Hoolie" David hit a right hand set 
shot froai the right side cf the floor 
to clinch the game, 50 to 49. 

Ark City managed to stall the ball 
with several fouls being called on the 
frantic Conqs and to grab the game, 
50 to 4;). 

Bengals Beat Grizzlies 
A high flying El Dorado juco quin- 
tet invaded the Bengals' lair Jan. 11 
and returned home w th their tails 
between their legs. The Tigers booted 
the Grizzlies to their first league de- 
feat to the tune of a 69-56 score. 

The taller opponents were handled 
well by the Arks under the boards 
and on the floor. A major share of 
the rebounding was done by Jerry 
David, Cec Hawkins and Ray Potter. 
Johnnie Gaddis, diminutive guard, 
played one of his best games to date. 
Both on offense and defense Gaddis 
showed a lot of fire and hustle. 

Again Ray Potter led the locals in 
the scoring column with 27 points. A 
superb job of faking, driving and 
feeding was displayed by the Ark for- 

Arks 53, Ravens 52 
Coffey ville Ravens fell victim to the 
Tigers for the second time this year, 
53 to 52, Tuesday night on the Raven 
court. With the score standing 47 to 
41, Coffey ville, as the contest neared 
its end, a flurry of Ark baskets and a 
final </e-breaking free throw gavo 
the victory to the Bengals. It was a 
non-conference tilt. __ ... __

Junior College 



any College 
Students Earn 
Part of Living 

Aproximately 40 per cent of the 
college student body is doing some 
type of outside work, in the estima- 
tion of Dean K. R. Galle. Making a 
large proportion of the present juco 
population at last partically self-sup- 

A wide a ariety of industries and 
business engage the efforts of these 
wonting students in part-time or full 
time jobs. These include the telephone 
exchange, Hour mills, railways, man- 
ufacturing, hotels, refineries, grocery 
stores, service sCttkns, dry good.j 
siores, mortuaries, office work, secre- 
tarial and stenographic work, farm- 
ing, oil companies, and the hospital. 

i'en students not only earn money 
but receive eight hours credit a sem- 
ester toward a diploma. They are en- 
ro. led in the trade and industry course 
under the direction of Carl Holman 
or the distributive education course 
under A. L. Curry. 

The job training programs are set 
up by the state educational agencies 
in order to train the student for a 
specific job during a period of two 
years apprenticeship. In addition to 
at least a week of work, tie student 
has 2 hours of related study each day 
at which job analysis, management, 
and specific instruc-tion on the partic- 
ular job is taught. The instructor also 
keeps contact with the employer in 
order to correct the weak spots. 

No estimate of the total amounts 
earned are recorded, but the 12 dis- 
tributeiy education and trade and in- 
dustry students reported a total in- 
come of $6,000 for the first semester. 
Since pay scales for these students 
are for learners and apprentices, and 
the primary purpose is training 
rather than income, it is logica 1 , in 
the opinion of a faculty mem- 
ber, to believe that other students 
averaged equal or better returns. 

The Board of Fducation has an- 
nounced the re-election of Dean K. R.

Germany, writes the staff that he is 
enjoying his first experiences in Eu- 

"I am stationed at Um; it is a tex- 
tile town located on the Danube River. 
A cathedral, too beautiful to describe, 
is located there. It was started in 1377 
and finished in the early 1930's. Part 
of the north side was destroyed by 
bombs, but is being rebuilt now. From 
the top you can see the Alps. 

"Perhaps you shve heard of the 
'Passion Play', the story of Christ that 
is given every ten years, I had the 
good fourtune to see the theater and 
go through all the dressing rooms. 
Some of the costumes are wonderful 
and many are the originals. 

"There are many old castles here, 
but so far I have visited only one. The 
inside of this castle was plated with 
24- carat gold. Belive me, I have never 
seen anything so dazzling and beauti- 

Patterson mentioned having spent 
three days at Garmish, the "play- 
ground of Europe," the site of pre- 
Olympic games. He talked with sev- 
eral of the Olompic stars, including 
America's Dick Button, ice skater. 

He writes that even though Ger-

Final Home 
Game with 
Pratt Feb. 8 

In their final home game of the 
season the Tigers will play host to 
Pratt, Feb. 8, and are hoping to down 
the Beavers as they did earlier in the 
year to the tune of 60-56. 

The following night the Juco five 
travel to Winfield for a tussle with 
the St. Johns quintet, who fell be- 
neath the Tiger's paw in their form- 
er game. The Eagles are nearly un- 
beatable on their small home court. 

El Dorado, an ancient rival of the 
Tigers, will play host to them Feb. 
17 in what may prove to be a decis- 
ive game, with El Dorado out after 
blood since the Tiger hoosters were 
the first conference foe to down them, 
by a score of 69-56 earlier this year. 

The last game of the season for 
the Tigers comes Feb. 22, when they 
journey to Independence for a non- 
conference tilt with the Pirates who 
won 45 to 44 on the local boards in 
the season opener.

final stanza, the Tigers engineered a 
three-minute stall over Hutchinson's 
Blue Dragons for their fifth con- 
ference win of the season January 25. 
With this victory, the Tigers gained 
possession of first place in the West- 
ern division race, while El Dorado, 
with a 4-1 record, was idle. 

Jerry David, game captain, racked 
up 15 points in one of his best games 
Ray Potter had a hot evening, eollect- 
ing25 points while playing only half 
the game. The squad, however, suffer- 
ed greatly from the loss of the ill 
Cecil Hawkins and his artistic re- 
bounding, as the Dragons controlled 
the ' backboards most of the game. 
Other men making the trip were 
Larry Johnson, Fred Hughes, Jerry 
Garris Johnny Gaddis, Bob Beck, 
Wayne Thompson, Fred Rindt, Larry 
Penner, and Frank Baker. 

It was the first game for Hughes 
and "'Thompson, the former transfer

Tigers Clout Ravens 
By 53-52 Count 

Jerry Garris stole the ball from a 
husky Red Raven and sailed the full 
length of the court for a neat layup 
and the winning point as time ran 
out, and the Tigers had beaten Cof- 
feyville College 53-52. The game was 
played at Coffeyville, January 22. 

The Red Ravens' hopes soared in 
the final quarter as Potter fouled 
Clegg for his final personal for the 
evening. Clegg, having made eight 
straight free tosses up until tnen, 
made only one out of three awarded 
him. This brought the Ravens to 
within one point of the gallant Tigers, 
who then stalled out the remainder of 
the game. 

L&rry Johnson, playing only a few 
moments of tne contest, racked up 
eight points in his first tussle for the 
Tiger squad. Other players making 
the trip were Jerry David, Jerry Gar- 
ris, Johnny Gaddis, Fred Rindt, Larry

Juco basketeers dropped two cru- 
cial tilts to the Dodge City Conqs, 
76 to 57 and the Garden Broncs, 65 
to 40 last week end to cripple their 
chances at the conference title. The 
Tigers still hold first place since El 
Dorado lost both tilts also. 

In the third period of the Dodge 
City battle the Tigers' mighty mite, 
Johnny Gaddis, stumbled, striking his 
head on an opponent's knee. The ac- 
cident put the Tigers' rocket gaurd 
in the hospital with a brain concus- 
sion. Jerry David had his turn in the 
fourth quarter, as he came out of a 
scramble v ith a cracked nose. 

Ray Potter, high scorer of the game 
with a neat 28 points, was followe I 
closely by Dodge's Charlie Smith, who 
racked up 25 points. David held sec- 
ond place scoring honors for the Ben- 
gals, with 12 points while Cecil Haw- 
kins collected 8 counters. Other play- 
ers seeing action were Fred Hughes, 
Frank Baker, Jerry Garris, Wayne 
Thompson and Johnny Gaddis. 

The following evening the Tiger 
quintet fell beneath the Garden City 
cr w by a score of 65 to 41. The Ben- 
gal pack were cold from the start an I 
the Broncs became hotter as the game 
progressed on their own court. 

The loss of these two league games 
put Ark City on the spot with th"> 
necessity of winning the two remain- 
ing games to be certain of a first 
place tie in the Western Division juco

City Sunday night and is staving with

Junicr College 



Move to New 
Building Not 
Yet Definite 

The 1952 sophomores may expect to 
have some classes in the new junior 
college in late spring, but Dr. Jerry 
J. Vineyard has refused to state a 
definite time when the juco classes are 
to move. 

All the possible materials are now 
available, according to a report of the 
contractor, for the purpose of con- 
struction, Dr. Vineyard said last week. 

New equipment will be purchase! 
only for the science and home econ- 
omic departments at the present, due 
to the lack of bond issue funds. There- 
fore most of the equipment of the 
present classrooms will be moved, the 
superintendent said. 

Many of the rooms have been as- 
signed to definite classes. Th" horn 
economics room of the north side of 
the first floor and the scie ice room 
on the south side of the second floor 
are assigned because special lighting 
and plumbing facilities have been in- 
stalled there. 

A special speech room has be""" 
constructed, containing a stage and 
a stage entrance. Other classes have 
temporary rooms assigned whicli 
could be changed if necessary. 

The auditorium on the extreme west 
will be used as a multiple-purpose 
room. The floor will be covered with 
a?phalt tile and the ceiling will be 
finished with view to obtaining proper 
aecoustical qualities. 

In addition the janitors will have 
a workroom on each floor specially 
designed as a storage for their tools 
and supplies. 

The basement will not be finished 
in the immediate future. The original 
p'ans for it included a student lounge, 
Tiger Tales office, storage space, and 
truck lcadine department. 

Dean K. R. Galle stated that no 
plans have been made for moving, nor 
'or additional personnal.

Dr. Ruroy Sibley, scientist, author, 
lecturer, will present in assembly, 
March 5, an "Adventure into Bound- 
less Space". He will show a motion 
picture in both color and black and

than ours really look. 

37 Sophomores 
For Graduation 

Thirty-seven sophomores are candi- 
dates for graduation, including 15 
women and 22 men, Dean K. R. Galle 
hrs announced. 

In comparison with classes of the 
last five years, this is the smallest 
rrorn. The class of '49 holds the re- 
cord high with 81 members. The sec- 
ond smallest group was in 1947 with 
54 stud nts.

Marlmbist Presents 
Variety Program 

A variety program of both classi- 
cal and popular musical selections 
was presented by Miss Delores Spit- 
zer, marimbist, in the regular college 
assembly last week. 

The marimba, according to Miss 
Spitzer, dates back as far as 3,000 
B.C. It is made from Guatemalan 
rosewood and is the chief percussion 
instrument of Mexico and South 

Numbers seemingly most enjoyed 
by students were "Stardust," "Cana- 
dian Capers," "La Golandrina," 
"Flight of the Bumble Bee," and "The 
Lord's Prayer." 


ViaenA. 5 IjeanA, /J^v 

A glimpse at the February 1947 
issues of Tigers Tales would reveal the 
following as the highlights in juco 

The second semester enrollment 
stood at 245 students as compared to 
the enrollment of the 120 students in 
1946. The former figure included 160 

Supt. C. E. St. John submitted his 
resignation after 29 years of service 
as head of the city school system. 

The bond election for the new juco 
building was approved by the Board 
of Education. 

The second semester enrollment in- 
cluded the total of 34 new students. 

In sports the Tigers lost to Dodge 
City 33-45, while the game with Gar- 
den city prroved to be a thriller with 
the Tigers victorious 45-44. Bill 
Sneller lead the scoring. 

Nothing like getting the knowledge 
first hand, Bobby Hunt thought. So, 
when big sister JoAnn Hunt and her 
friend Bill Sheldon come home, Bobby 
still being awake, came out on the 
porch in hopes of being there when 
Bill took his leave. He waited and 
waited, and so did Bill. Finally JoAnn 
remembered some pictures she had 
wished to show Bill; so they got out 
of the car and stepped into the gar- 
age to get them. Bobby said to him- 
self, "Now he's going to tell her 
goodnight." So pajama-clad, he went 
to the garage door to join the group. 
Sheldon left without any interesting- 
incident, and JoAnn took Bobby in 
to put him to bed. 

JoAnn described the incident to a 
friend next day. 

"Poor Bobby — how disappointed he 
must have been," sympathized the 

"Poor Bobby! — Huh!" retorted Jo 

Ain't it the truth! Any dog dumi 

enough to lie under the bridge table 

during a game between married 

couples deserves everything he gets. 


The teacher had lectured on the var- 
ious facts of communism, fascism and 
nazism. Then turning to the bright 
pupil said: "Johnny, what would you 
do with all these .sms ? " 

"I'd make them all wasms!" came 
the prompt reply. 


Things change so fast these days a 
man couldn't stay wrong all the time if 
he tried. — Independent Herald (Pine- 
ville, W. Va.) 

Meet Mutel &d 

If you see a group of girls gos- 
siping in the halls you can guess 
that they are probably talking about 
one of the new students this semes- 
ter, Wayne Thompson. Wayne ca™ n 
f'-om Atlanta, but he went to Udall 
High for three years and the re- 
maining one at At'ant 5 ). F° is tak- 
ing a Business Administration 
Course, and he says that he likes A. C. 
very well. 

Wayne, a freshman, stands at five 
feet, nine inches, and has brown eyes 
and dark curly hair. His favorite 
food is iello and the color blue rates 
as his favorite. 

When we asked Wayne what his 
idea of an enioyable date was, he re- 
plied, "A girl." And say gals, this is 
lean year! 

Wavne has been demonstrating his 
favorite sport in the last few basket- 
ball games. He has been traveling 
with the team since second semester 

Can people forget they were once 
young? Take Allan Maag, for in- 
stance, standing before his class com- 
centing of his feelings when following 
behind a car in which were plainly 
seen a young couple necking. "I think 
it is disgusting," Mr. Maag said, "the 
way young people make a show of 
themselves now-a-days." 
"Well, why didn't you pass them 
then?" Barbara Thomas quickly 
asked him. 


It happened in the foods class on 
test day. One question was, "What is 
poultry?" Pat Hadley got the answer 
quickly. She wrote, "Poultry is any- 
thing that has two legs and feathers." 

Summer is that stretch of uncom- 
fortable weather between ten days of 
pleasent weather in the spring and a 
week of ideal weather in the fall. — 
Cincinnati Enquiver. 


The teacher was talking about the dol- 
phin and its habits - - - "anil child- 
ren," she said impressively, "just 
think! A single dolphin will have 
2,000 baby dolphins." 

"Goodness," exclaimed the little 
Kill at the foot of tie class, "how 
many do the married ones have?" 

'Many men are at the 'metallic' 
age — gold in their teeth, silver in 
their hair, and lead in th ir pants." 

Traveling Man (to acquaintance 
watching a hotel fire): "Nothing to 
get excited about. I took my tiim 
about dressing; didn't like the knot 
in my necktie and retied it; that's h nv 
cool I was before I left that blazing 

Bystander: "But why didn't you put 
your pants on ?" 


"You look all in today, Jim; what's 
the trouble?" 

"Well, I didn't get home until morn- 
ing, and just as I was undressing my 
wife woke up and said, 'Aren't you 
getting up early, Jim?' So to avoid 
an argument I put on my clothes and 
came to work." 


A little coil, 
A little gas, 
A little oil, 
A piece of tin, 
A two-inch board. 
Put them together 
And you've got a Ford. 

"I have only ten minutes, and I 
hardly know where to begin," said the 

"Begin at the ninth minute," sug- 
gested a bystander. 




Phyllis Stover 
Crowned As 
Tigers Queen 

At the last home cage game Feb- 
ruary 8, Phyllis Stover was named 
basket ball queen. The coronation took 
place at the half time of the Pratt- 
Ark City game. 

The candidates, Melba Reser, 
Phyllis,, and Christine Laingor were 
escorted to the center of the floor by 
Larry Penner, Wayne Thompson, and 
Ired Rindt. 

Johnny Gaddis opened the sealed en- 
velope containing the name and then 
placed the orange and black crown, 
centered with a Tiger's head, upon 
1 hyllis's head. 

Margaret Dempsey, TAG student 
council representative, awarded her 
with a bouquet of yellow mums, and 
Pauline Hall, TAC president, placed 
a silver basketball necklace around 
he r reck. 

Follo'.ving the coronation the queen 
ruled from her satin-coverd throne in 
the co'lege cheering section. 

A social was held in the auditorium- 
gym following the game. Cards, 
dancing, and games by the so ial com- 
rrittee furnished the recreation, and 
a progra m was presented. 

The progra n included a piano 
selection by Howard Fa ,- k; two vocal 
selections by soLists, Gerry Bartlett 
shvine- "And So To Sleep Again" and 
"The Little French Clock, Dalton Co?k 
singing- "I'm in the Mo~d for Love" 
and "That Lucky Old Sun"; a pant- 
omime by M< lvin Waldorf of "Ten 
" ittle Botios"; and a song " The 
World Is Waiting for the Sunrise" by 
the girls' quintet, composed of Gerry 
Bart'ett Pauline Hill, Bonnie Lord, 
Patty Pattern, and Barbara Thomas,

turn this week to non-conference 
opposition and tournament play, to 
round out an almost completed basket- 
ball season. 

The Bengals journey to Indepen-

be attempting to maintain the su- 
periority over the Tigers established 
earlier in the season when they de- 
feated the Arks on the local boards, 
45 to 44. 

Since losing their chance at the 
Western Division crown, the Bengals 
are hoping for an invitation to enter 
the annual Kansas AAU tournament 
at Wichita, beginning March 1. On 
previous occasions the Cats have given 
good accounts of themselves in the 
classic, and have been rated a crowd 
pleasers, so no difficulties anticipated 
in gaining entry. 


Tigers Downed Sn 
Non-Conference Go 
By St. Johns Five 

Ark City's Tigers fell victim to the 
St. Johns squad on the Eagles' court 
February 9, to the tune of 50 to 48. 
The Speermen made a swift rally in 
the last quarter but it was too late 
to overwhelm their host.

this semester, played excellent ball, 
scoring 9 and 8 points respecti /eiv. 
Ray 1 otter, playing a much better 
game than the night before, col- 
lected 24 counters for high scorer of 
the game. 

This win for the Fag'.es was sweet 
revenge. The Tigers downed th m ear- 
lier in the season by only on? poi-.t 
in an overtime pericd. 

Ilelberg, gsme cay tain for the Johi- 
nies, collected 9 points while playing

Dorado planned to chart r a bus to 
take the junior college students to the 
i.ame Frid. y 15. The bus required a

Besvers S':esl 
Crucial Cage Game 
From Tiger Squad 

Pratt Beavers defeated the Tiger 
quintet, Feb. 8, by a score of 52 to 59. 
From the very beginning it seemed 
as though the visiting players just 
couldn't miss, and they effhetinely 
ruined Bengal hopes to the en .1 t..eir 
home season with a victory. 

Cecil Hawkins, Tiger Center, played 
an outstanding game, racking up 24 
points, while the closest opponent 
fit only 16. Bob Beck, who sow only 
limited action, played a real ga ne, 
collecting 6 points en set shots and 
set ups. 

Ray Potter, local bucket rce ha ' a 
bad night collecting only 9 points 
before leaving the game in the t ird 
period with five personals. 

Don Johnson, Beaver cent r with 
an average of about 20 points, hit 16 
counters and second place scoring 
honors in the game. Ken Stalcup, 
playing guard for the Pratt ^q md 
came in third with scoring honors 
with 13 points besides giving the 
Tigers a touph game. 

The loss of this game ruined the 
Tigers' chance for having undisputed 
first place standing in the Western 
Division iuco race . 

Tigers Lose 
Close Ti 

Grizzly Squa* 

Playing a very close game all even- 
ing, ElDorado took the final loop con- 
test from the Tigers by a narrow mar- 
gin of only one point. Ray Potter, tak- 
ing a tip off from Cecil Hawkins, tried 
desperately for the winning goal with 
only3 seconds left to play on the Griz- 
zly court Feb. 15. As the final buzzer 
sounded the ball was in the air for 
Ark City but the heart breaking shot 
failed to connect and the score read, 
ElDorado Grizzlies 57, Ark City 55. 

In the last quarter, v. ith eight 
minutes left to play, it looked as 
though the Grizzlies might be off to a 
last quarter rally as the Tigers lagged 
by 6 points. In a drastic come-back the 
Bengals led twice by one point but 
couldn't keep it. 

Cecil Hawkins was high scorer of 
the game with 16 counters. Len Wil- 
son, crowding Cecil for t e mo t 
points, collected 15 pom's for tho 
Grizzlies. Potter nett ■' 12 nomt- 
v hile playing only the first and final 
quarters of the game. Jerry David 
left the game early in the third quar- 
ter with five personals, four of them 
called in that quarter. 

Other players seeing action were 
Larry Johnson, Fred Hughes, Jerry 
Garris, Wavne Thompson, and Fred

Majority Favor 
Time Current 
Affairs Test 

It was revealed that the recent cur- 
rent affairs test was approved by a 
majority of the students in a survey 
conducted among them to get their 
reaction to it. Although many thought 
it was difficult they also thought it 
was beneficial and worthwhile. 

These are responses given by some 
of the students that took the test. 
Phyllis Gilmore-'Tve decided I'd bet- 
ter quit reading the society page and 
the funny papers." 

Margaret Dempsey-"Almost as bad as 
my rhetoric test." 
Betty Hardiman-"Wasn't too hard." 
Pat Branch-"For smart people O. K. 
— for me it was awful." 
Bunt Morris-"O.K. by me." 
Helen Gochis-"I better start reading 
the newspapers." 

Gerry Bartlett-"I didn't think it was 

Russell Leach-"Rough!" 
Emmett Claypool-"I sure thought it 
was hard." 

Pat Hadley-"It was hard." 
Richard Lambring-"Nothing the mat- 
ter with it." 

Pete Kahler-"It was easy." 
Henrietta 01vera-"I thought it was 
easier last year." 

Lawrence Anglemyer-"It was rough." 
Charles Sanders-"A pretty good idea, 
makes us more conscious about cur- 
rent events."

If you have been in the clubrooms 
lately, no doubt you have seen one 
of the "wonders" of the freshman 
class, Cecil Hawkins, devoting his 
spare time to the marvelous game of 
ping-pong. Cecil, after having a stren- 
uous season of basketball has"retired" 
to a more slowly moving game. But 
never fear, he hasn't forgotten his 
basketball tactics. When the ball 
comes into Cecil's court he lets it 
dribble twice (at least) before return- 
ing the ball. When he gets ready for 
that return he takes his position for 
shooting with one leg high in the air 
and the other fixed to hold his weight 
(he thinks). Cecil has never yet cal- 
led a "time-out", but he has won some

Meet MiUeA. Cd 

Our Mr. Ed for the week is short, 
has dark wavy hair, and is quite an 
athlete. Hailing from Caldwell, Clar- 
ence Milbourn attended his first sem- 
ester of college at K-State and trans- 
ferred to Ark City second semester. 
He is taking a physical education 
course, and says his favorite sport 
is football. 

The Caldwell freshman rates 
shrimp as his favorite food, out 
"Shrimp Boats" isn't his favorite 
song. It's "A Kiss To Build a Dream 
On". Like most boys, Clarence pre- 
fers blue in a color scheme, while his 
idea of a good date is "loads of fun" 
:.nd he's not too particular about how 
the looks. 

Clarence says he li.ces Ark City, 
but the college students could be a 
little more friendly.

Men Stenos 
In Demand 
By Business 

Who has the better chance for a 
big future and a chance for better 
and higher advancement, men or 
women? The question refers to bus- 
iness work for men and women and 
the answer to this question requires 
consideration of opportunities and 
capabilities, according to Miss Arm- 
strong, junior college business instr- 

"There is a great basic difference 
between the secretaryship for men 
and secretaryship for women," Miss 
Armstrong says. "For women, secret- 
aryship spells 'stop gap.' For, men 
secretaryship spells, stepping stones 
to a brilliant career." 

A young man who has had a thor- 
ough secretarial training has the 
brightest future of anyone who is 
governed by the classified depart- 
ments of education. In other words, he 
can travel any career-building high- 
way he chooses, and he is fully as- 
sured that he will arrive at his dest- 
ination, safe and sound, according to 
schedule Miss Armstrong believes. 

This is substantially more than can 
be said of any other type of worker, 
and it is due wholly to his superior 
training. He can qualify for a posi- 
tion in any kind of business, and in a 
comparatively short time, he will be 
able to handle a branch department of 
the business. This is especially true 
if he has the knowledge and skills, 
plus and innate ability, character, and 
ambition to succeed. 

"Because so few young men have 
realized the opportunity that the sec- 
retarial skills open to them, there are 
three results worth noting: First, 
those men who have taken such train- 
ins: have advanced with spectacular 
rabidity. Second, beginning men sec- 
retaries, by and large, earn more piy 
than do beginning women secretaries. 
Third, there is a great, unfulfilled de- 
mand for more men secretaries, which 
women cannot possibly hope to qual- 
ify," Miss Armstrong said. 

A quarter of ths placement agencies 
said thev have openings for men 
secretaries that can"ot be filled by 
women. Half the agencies state that 
most of the openings they have for 
men secretaries are superior to the 
openings they have for women. Many 
men who have reached close to the top 
salarv brackets, from $15,000 to 
$35,000 per year, betran their careers 
as secretary-stenograhers. 

"The fundamental reason that mnr 
men have not used the stenographic- 

St. John Chapter 
Plans the Adoption 
of Constitution 

The adoption of a constitution was 
discussed at the regular meeting of 
the C. E. St. John chapter of the Fut- 
ure Teachers of America when mem- 
bers met February 19, in the junior 
high school projection room. 

Other topics under discussion were 
the invitation of Bill Martin, author 
of children's books' to be a guest 
speaker at the April meeting, and 
entertaining high school seniors in- 
terested in teaching at a covered dish 
dinner in May. 

A moving picture, "The Teacher," 
was shown to the group by Miss Mary 
Margaret Williams and Charles Se- 
well, co-sponsors of the chapter. 

Refresments were served by the 
hostesses Gerry Bartlett, Barbara 
Thomas, and Beverly Dunbar. 

Shop Courses 
Reveal Variety 
Of Projects 

The "busy boys" in W. A. Sneller's 
machine shop course are making 
punches, hammers, meat-hammers, 
and dowel pin locaters. These boys 
are also making drivers' license hold- 
ers for the bi-annual exhibit of all 
industrial art courses. Besides their 
other projects, they are learning how 
to run the turret lathe, forge, planer, 
in'' machine lathe. 

Tho?e enrolled for the course are 
Pete Kahler and Calvin Hockenbury. 

Some of the students who are in-

Some of the projects are mahogany 
and oak kneenole desks, cedar chests, 
Hollywood beds, and beside night- 

Those enrolled in the course this 
semester are Teddy Purvis, Calvin

vin Fluis. Galen Mc Laughlin, Nor- 
dan Young, Bob McKee, and Kenneth 
Meece were enrolled last fall. 

skills as springboards to business car- 
eers, appears simply to be that young 
men have not realized the possibili- 
ties or have not had the opportunity 
to take secretarial training," Miss 
Armstrong believes. 

"Junior college men have the op- 
portunity to take advantage of this 
sprineboard in the courses now off- 
ered in the business department."

Scientist Discusses 
'Boundless Space" 
In Juco Assembly 

Dr. Ruroy Sibley scientist, author, 
and lecturer, presented "An Adven- 
tare into Boundless Space,,' Wednes- 
day in regular college assembly. 

Dr. Sibley lectured, with the aid of 
motion pictures on the sun, which is 
simply an average star that is close 
to the earth. Through this study came 
a Letter understanding of the nature 
and n-eaning of the million of stars 
and the countless galaxies of stars, 
disclosed by the telescope. 

Both colored pictures and black 
and white showed some of the beaut- 
ies and wonders of other worlds than 
the earth. Pictures of Mars, Jupiter 
an.l Saturn revealed how the nearby 
astxon mical bodies really looked. 

Two of the marvelous instruments 
that Dr. Sibley used to enable him to 
make the "journey" were the 200-inch 
Hale telescope and the 48-inch Schm- 
idt camera- telescope. Through the 
powerful lens of the telescope he 
introduce viewers to the outer uni- 
verse which extends out a distance of 
500,000,000 light years. 




Tiger Squad 
Captures Tilt 
From Pirates 

The powerful Independence Pirates 
felt the sharp claws of the Bengal 
five, Feb. 22, when the Tigers broke 
their jinx of five successive losses to 
win the last scheduled game of the 
season, 63 to 61. 

Johnnie Gaddis smw considerable 
action although he has been out of the 
five preceding games because of a 
concussion. Playing a driving game 
all the way, Ray Potter led the field 
in scoring honors, collecting 33 count- 
ers. Coming in in second place for 
buckets for Ark City was Cecil Haw- 
kins, who netted 10 points. 

Five of the Pirate players left the 
game in the final quarter by way of 
the foul route'. Among them was Jim 
Kirkendoll, who racked up 16 points 
for the Independence squad. 

The crowning of the Independence 
junior college basketball queen high- 
lighted the half time period. 

Other players seeing action Were 
Larry Johnson, Jerry David, Fred 
Hughes, Jerry Garris, Bob Beck, and 
Wayne, Thompson.

Building Still 
Just a Hope 

The sophomore class of the junior 
college are holding hard their hopes 
of having the honor of being the 
first class to finish their college course 
in the new junior college building. 
Due to the almost ideal weather the 
past few weeks the construction on 
the building has been progressing 
much more rapidly than had been 
expected. On March 24, C. E. St. John 
quoted the contractor as saying, "The 
new building will take at least two 
months for completion." 

The office was the first room to be 
inspected. Besides the usual features 
of a school office the attention was 
caught by an unusual feature, a 
flower box. Another was the glass 
construction block which allows light 
to enter without impairing the 
strength of the wall. 

Remembering that the Tigerama is 
coming up soon and that the auditor- 
ium was the center of interest. It was 
all completed except the tile to be 
placed on the floor. 

Annual Chorus Feed 
Held On April Fools 

April first, may prove to have been 
a fateful day for- members of the col- 
lege chorus class. The annual dinner 
was always looked forward to with 
great expectancy, but this year having 
it on April 1 was quite a joke. The 
dinner had been scheduled for March 
17 but was postponed. 

A special committee worked out the 
airangements and the menu which 
consisted of chicken casserole, potato 
chips, corn, green beans, vegetable 
salad, French bread, and ice cream 
and cage. The main course was furnis- 
hed by the girl members of the chor- 
us and the ice cream was furnished 
by the boys. 

There have been no fatalities and 
many of the students stated that they 
eijoyed themselves very much. 

Elementary Science Class 
Takes Various Field Trips 

If you have seen some sleepy-eyed 
girls carrying pressure cookers, grass, 
dirt or other curious objects, its pro- 
bably the girls from the elementary 
school science class bringing in sub- 
jects for observation. The class has 
been taking some field trips lately and 
some of the places they have been 
are Moncrief's Floral Shop to study 
plants and their growth and develop- 
ment; Osage Electric, observing re- 
frigerators, stoves and deep freezers, 
and Kanotex Refinery for the study 
of the manufacture of oil. 

Those rr.i akin? the trips were 
Dorothy Slaven, Helen Kirk, Christine 
Laingor, Frances Blenden, Donna

Mrs. Aubrey Witt of Ponca City 
has sent the class an invitation to 
visit her science class some Saturday 
morning. No definite plans for that 
trip have been completed. 

Receptions Held 
Following Juco Play 

Receptions for the visiting seniors 
from out-of-town schools were held 
Thursday and Friday night following 
the performance of the play. Out-of-

soon coming up. 

Forensic Meet 
To Be Held 
In El Dorado 

Ten contestants from Arkansas 
City plan to enter the State Junior 
College Speech Festival to be held 
April 4 and 5 at the El Dorado Jun- 
ior College. 

The debate team, consisting of 
Lawrence Anglemeyer and Gene Cra- 
mer, will debate on the subject "Re- 
solved: The Federal government 
should adopt a permanent program of 
wage and price control." Two original 
orations will be given: "Integrity: the 
Cornerstone of American Democracy" 
by Patti Patton, and "It Tolls for 
Thee", by Lorene Young. 

Two of the group are giving ora- 
torical declamations. They are Pau- 
line Hall, with "To Make Men Free", 
and Elmo Crain with "Keepers of the 
Spring." Melba Reser and Patti Pat- 
ten will do interpretative reading. 
Poetry reading will be done by Melba 
Reser and Robert Warrender. 

Elmo Crain and Gene Cramer will 
each give an after-dinner speech. 
Jeannette Gowan is entered in story- 
telling with the story "Snow White 
and Rose Red". Helen Gochis will re- 
view the book "Nuts in May" by Cor- 
nelia Otis Skinner. Bible reading

select a theme for the annual Tiger- 
ama to be held May 16, which will ba 
appropriate for the new building. 
The Tigerama will be held in the as- 
sembly room of the new building. 

The contractors hope to have the

^Aade lait 9 Weeki 

How many students pause, for the 
few seconds that it takes, to read the 
words of wisdom pictured in that 
frame across from the office ? Just 
last week they produced some good 
food for thought. This is how it read: 
"What you do when you have nothing 
to do really shows what you are." 

Somehow this struck one as a sayi-g 
worthwhile to remember. Now that 
spring has been fully ushered in and 
fhe last nine weeks also, we all find 
it a little more easy to let down our 
school woi'k and to spend more of our 
"free" time in the clubrooms. 

We realize that all work and no 
play makes Jack a dull boy, but all 
play and no work makes Jack even 
a duller boy. 

The teachers realize that the school 
term is nearing an end, too, and ma. y 
times find that the last nine weeks ar_' 
the most difficult to teach if students 
do not prepare their lessons or merely 
sit idlely in the classroom, failing to 
participate in class discussion. Re- 
member they enjoy relaxing as much 
as the student, but first they remem- 
ber their jobs. Should the student re- 
member his? 

Students can help instructors dur- 
ing these final weeks by having their 
lessons prepared and by attending 
classes. They will find they enjoy their 
spare time more, enjoy other people's 
company more when they don't com- 
plain that they should be studying, 
but aren't, and make their classes 
more interesting. It might even save 
all that cramming when finals roll 

Should we try it?— Barbara Thom-

Gentlemen graduates are not the 
only athletes of Junior College who 
add to the honor of their Alma Mater. 
Down at OU Priscilla Laughlin, '50 
graduate, placed guard on the champ- 
ionship women's intramural basket- 
ball team. While in AC she built a 
good background with four semesters 
of physical education. She was active 
in tennis and basketball here. 


A daughter was born to Mr. and 
Mrs. Buel Beck in the Memorial Hos- 
pital March 25 at 8:25. She weighed 
eight pounds. Mr. Beck is a 1951

Ann replied,"No, I like wet ones!"

Mr. Day's geography classes have 
been studying the different countries 
of the world. In a discussion of the 
Netherlands and its possessions, Bar- 
bara Upson asked this brilliant ques- 
tion: Do the Dutch East Indies belong 
to the Netherlands ? 


It would seem that pec pie from 
other countries pick up the? American 
way of life rather fast. Recently on 
one of the occasional visits of Joe 
Trimper, formerly from Berlin, to the 
German class this incident occurred: 

Miss Anne Hawley wagered a dollar 
with Bill Thomas that Joe would back 
her strongly in impressing into the 
minds of her students that there was 
no progressive tense in German and 
that it could be expressed only by 
conjugation of the present tense. 

Mr. Trimper turned quickly tJ

Sophomore Girls 
Attend Fete Given 
Yearly by A A UW 

"To continue one's education it is 
necessary to assess the opportunities 
available, and to take stock of one's 
own abilities mental physcial, and 
emotional, and to adjust desires to 
those abilities." Miss Margaret Pe- 
terson, assistant Dean of Women at 
KU, told guests at the annual enter- 
tainment for girls graduating from 
junior college and high school given 
by American Association by Univer- 
sity Women. 

Miss Peterson spoke on the import- 
ance of continuing one's education 
both formally and informally. She 
stressed as the four responsibilities of 
women, the establishment of cu.tare 
and refinement in society, the growth 
of citizenship, the attainment of some 
saleable skill, and learning homemak- 
ing and child care. 

Throughout her speech, Miss Peter- 
son encouraged attendance at junior 
college. She stated that both Kansas 
State and K. U. are associated with 
all the junior colleges in Kansas, and 
recognize their worth and accept their 
work at face value.

A glimpse at the March 1947 issues 
of Tiger Tales ; would reveal the fol- 
lowing as the -highlights in juco news. 

The winner' of- the current affairs 
test was. announced by Dean Galle. 

The winner was Betty Ann Oliver. 

The junior college students broad- 
cast every Thursday at 4:15 p. m. on 
the "Juco Hour", over KSOK. 

Junior college students staged their 
own drive for a new college home, to 
get out the vote on the bond issue. 

The junior college chorus under the 
direction pf C._ L. Hinchee prepared 
to present Stainer's "Cru^ificixion" for 
the Easter assembly program, to be 
held in the Methodist Church. 

In sports the Tigers defeated the 
Pratt Beavers 58-30. Jimmy Turner 
lead the; scoring. The Tigers also de- 
feated the El Dorado Grizzlies 48-47. 
Rodney Wilson lead the scoring. 

Junior College Receives 
Pool Table for Club Rooms 

A. temporary gift of a pool table 
was received Wednesday, February 
27 by the junior college. The table, a 
gift cf the Knights of Columbus, "was 
given to the proposed youth center. 
Since the. center has no home at the 
present time the table has been 
stored in the juco club room. The 
first thought was that it would pre- 
sent a problem to get it to the club 
rooms but the boys solved that by 
bringing it over in pieces. 

Many of the students are availing 
themselves of the privilege of using 
this table in their spare time. 

Beware!! Another woman driver is 
on the loose! March 10 proved to be a 
black day in the history of Arkansas 
City. Mary "Lulu" Whaley qualified 
for a drivers test and passed the fly- 
ing colors (of the parking flags)!!!! 
After knocking down the flags and 
the instructor several times, she fin- 
ally parked. What a struggle!! 

Following the wild joy ride, Mary 
forced the instructor to her in 
order to prevent a reoccurance of the 
test &nd the difficulty in explaining 
her s-1-i-g-h-t errors. 

Or so it is said by some! 

Two junior college classes brought 
in two gushers last week. Emmett 
Claypool and Pete Kahler brought 
the wells in, which paid dividends. 

The business English and short, and 
classes have been keeping score of 
all the times the students say ",,eL" 
in beginning a sentence. After havin ; 
said "well" 25 times a student 
or the instruct ,r must trert the class. 
On March 10, Emmett Claypool tr„- 
r.ted the class and on March 12, Pete 
Kahler furnishe 1 treats. 


All of our jokes were checked by a 
censor. As you know, a censor is a 
guy who can find three meanings in a 
joke when there are only two.

The personality spotlight falls this 
week on a young lad hailing from 
A. C. via Boystown, Nebr., named 
Ben Givens. Classified as a fresh- 
nan, Ben stands at five feet eleven 
inches, has wavy hair and brown eyes. 

Rating blue ps his favorite color, 
Ben just couldn't decide which song 
he preferred most, so h? said, "I just 
like them all." Anything sweet rates 
as top food for him and he is major- 
ing in physical education. 

Ben demonstrated his favorite sport 
at the first of the year when he 
played on the football team. He also 
likes track and is entering the team 

You can usually see Ben with either 
Charles Morris or Marvin Fluis. 

A contest is being held within the 
play cast in connection with the ticket 
sales. The cast is divided into two 
teams, with Bonnie Lord and Melba 
Reser as captains. A party will be 
given by the losing side. 

Worth-while prizes will be given to 
the first and second place ticket sales- 
men in the play cast and in the rest 
of the student body. The speech clas- 
ses will also compete in ticket sales.

KU Campus Pastor 
Is Assembly Speaker 

Cus Ferre, Baptist minister on the 
campus and religion instructor at KU, 
addressed the students in assembly 
March 12. He was introduced to the 
group by Rev. Gross of the First 
. artist Church. 

"Only my tailor takes a new mea- 
suremert of me each time he sees me," 
quoted Mr. Ferre from Mark Twain. 
He be.ieves too many people keep old 
measu rements of Christianity formed 
in their youth. To take a correct 
measurement of its worth one must 
see it from all sides. 

"The Lasic heart of the Christian 
church is an ever forgiving love of 
your fellowmen. I believe everyone is 
basically honest and any cheating 
causes a conflict in our lives. No one 
1 a^ th." right to use other people to 
gain h'is own ends. Personality must 
be developed at all levels, cultural, 
physical, intellectual, and moral," 
Ferre told the students.

Shop Building 
Being Swiftly 

Nearing completion is the new shop 
building, adjacent to the new Acade- 
mic building on the North. Virtually 
speaking all of the brick-work, ex- 
cepting the inside partitions, and the 
dry part of the roof are complete C. 
E. St. John, architect's representative, 
said Wednesday. 

Being 204 feet long and 42 feet 
8 inches wide with only one partition 
the building is extremely flexible in 
use. One room, 115 feet long, can be 
divided into smaller shops by the use 
of temporary partitions. A smaller 
room is connected with the present 
vocational agriculture shop. 

All floors are of five inch, steel re- 
inforced concrete, suitable for hand- 
ling large machinery. A large over- 
head door is located on each side of 
the building so that larger pieces of 
equipment may be taken in. 

The huge shop will be heated by 
lurge overhead circulating heaters. 
Smoke and fumes will be carried from 
the shop by large exaust fans located 
at each end. 

Natural lighting will be the pri- 
mary source of light since nearly 
three-fourths of the wall space is 
made up of windows. 

An interesting fixture in the wash- 
r ',m will be a large circular wash 
fountain, 54 inches in di?meter, siin- 
il r to the eq ipment used in large 
industrial installations.

Annual Tigerama's Colorful 
Background Began in 1930 

John Skinner was ordained in the 
Episcopal church in Philadelphia in 
March. He was graduated from the 
Philadelphia Divinity School and got 
his bachelors degree from Denver Un- 
iversity. He and his wife, Rosemary 
Edwards, both attended junior college 
in 1946 and 1947. 

The 1952 Tigerama, presented each 
year by the Arkansas City Junior 
College, is already busily under way 
and preparations are being made for 
this gala event which will take place 
May 16. College students, high school 
seniors and seniors from surrounding- 
schools look forward to the Tigerama 
each year. 

But just how and when did the 
Tigerama orginate? Has it always 
been the same type of social affair? 
The answer to these questions stir 
grand old memories and retell an in- 
teresting story. 

The Tigerama orginated in the mid- 
dle 20's when E. Q. Brothers was the 
dean of junior college. However it was 
not yet known as the "Tigerama," but 
as the spring reception for high school 
seniors, held for the purpose on inter- 
esting the seniors in college. 

A program was usually held in the 
junior high auditorium, after which 
a reception would be held in the girls 
gym or in the junior high gym. There 
was no central theme to the party, 
but sometimes students did arrange a 
few decoiations. 

First Official Tigerama 

The first official junior college 
Tigerama was held April 17, 1930, 
with Miss Georgia Long as mistress 
of ceremonies. The program for this 
first Tigerama consisted of two parts. 
Part 1 featured "Women of Mystery", 
a short play with Vivian Brady, Mary 
Ellen Carlile, and Helen Hight as the 
participants. "Minuet", by Fostine Fox 

Part 11 was a musical review. As 
an opening the chorus sang "It's Col- 
lege". Bill Lord, father of juco sopho- 
more Bonnie Lord, presented a myst- 
ery act. A girl's trio, composed of 
Mary Geeslen, Pauline Funk, and 
Elcie Penfield, sang two numbers. A 
piano solo was offered by Jess Meeker, 
and a clog dance was given by the 
senior high girls. 

The final part of the program feat- 
ured Margaret Ambrose, Hazel Pe- 
ters, Helen Spain, Donald Glenn, 
Harold Gilbert, supported by the 
chorus in "College Blues" and "College 
Sweetheart". Everyone participated in 
the finale "That's' Why It's College". 
Honor Out-cf-tawn Guests 

The 1930 Tigerama also honored, 
for the first time, the senior eh-sses of 
Chilocco, Geuda Springs, Wellington, 
and Newkirk as college guests. Pre- 
viously only Ark City seniors had been 

In the year 1936 a poll was taken 
among the junior college and high 
school students in order to d^termin \ 
whether dancing should be permitted 

at the Tigerama. Due to the truth- 
fulness of the students on the quest- 
ion of the knowledge of dancing, it 
was discovered that very few knew 
how, so the matter was dropped. 

The question arose again in 1937, 
during which time it was decided that 
dancing and card playing would be 
permitted. That year the Tigerama 
was held in the auditorium-gymna- 
sium, which had just been completed. 
Approximately 600 people attended. 

Themes which have been used dur- 
ing the following years are "Star- 
dust", "On Deck", and "Candyland". 
More recent themes have been "The 
S. S. Tigerama" in 1948, with the 
setting on the deck of a huge sailing 
vessel; "Fiesta" in 1949. featuring a 
gay, colorful Spanish atmosphere; 
"Cindy's Ball" in 1950, at which a 
visiting Cedar Vale senior was 
crowned as Cinderella and presented 
with a glass slipper; "Flirtation 
Walk" in 1952, highlighted by a wish- 
ing well and "Kissing Rock". 

Special Committees Do Work 

The committees which have worked 
out the details for the Tigerama have 
been the social committee, the student 
council, cloakroom committee, and re- 
freshment committee. The entire stu- 
dent body joins together to decorate 
for this formal festival. 

This year, 1952, shall soon be his- 
tory, but it will mark a new era for 
the Tigerama. This year the annual 
event will be held in the new junior 
college assembly room with its theme 
"A New Home for the Tiger", at 
which a jungle setting will be carried 

Out of town guests have not been 
fully determined because many rural 
commencement exercises are sched- 
uled for that night. Invitations will 
be sent to the alumni, members of the 
faculty, local seniors, and those out- 
of-town seniors which will be selected.

John Gaddis Most 
Inspiring Player in 
Juco Basketball 

Johnny Gaddis, a small but great 
player, is recognized as the most in- 
spirational player on Ark City's 1952 
juco basketball squad. The choice was 
made April 9, at the annual basket- 
ball banquet sponsored by the 
Arkansas City Kiwanis Club. 

Approximately 275 persons attend- 
ed the banquet. Basketball teams and 
coaches from the junior high, senior 
high, junior college, and Chilocco In- 
dian school were guests. 

Jack Gardener, Kansas State bas- 
ketball coach, was the featured 
speaker. After his address Gardner 
showed the group moving pictures of 
the Kansas State-KU game at Man- 

Johnny Gaddis was a returning 
letterman for this years squad. He 
was a fireball guard for his size and 
gave many opponents a headache try- 
ing to hold him down. He was out of 
play during part of the season due to 
an injury, but he returned in time to 
see action in the last few games. 

Ladies from Oak Grove Community 
Council served the banquet in the Ar- 
mory building. This is the first year 
the public has been invited to the bas- 
ketball banquet, made possible be- 
cause the Kiwanis believed the fans 
would like to attend. 

One might be puzzled as he glances 
at the Independence April 1 paper. It 
seems as though they have developed 
an eight-man basketball team. Also, 
Jack Smyers lacks a qualification to 
play on the House of David basket- 
ball team. Jack cannot grow a beard, 
which is required of all players. 

Here's one for the books. Par- 
son's juco has seven girls out for 
wrestling' with hopes of having a 
triumphful season. 
Very little of the above should be 
considered seriously, as the Parsons 
and Independence reports were prin- 
ted on April 1. 

Emporia State Teachers won the 
season's first baseball game from C. 
of E. March 31, by a score of 11 to 

Fort Scott placed second in a track 
meet including Nevada and El Dor- 
ado. Nevada edged Fort Scott by a 
narrow three-point margin. 

Souihwestern's girls volley ball 
teams placed first in a tournament 
including 6 other teams. College of 
Emporia and St. Johns took second 
a ;d third places, respectively. 
John Gaddis has been so busy try- 
ing to convince his draft board that 
he isn't the boy they want that he 
dropped Juco track from his activi- 

Bob Sneller, former Tiger Tales re- 
porter, is home on a 30 day leave 
after playing a strenuious season on 
the Air Force Generals basketball 
team. Sneller will leave, in 30 days, 
for a point of embarcation to an un- 
known destination. 

Kansas City Blue Devils won the 
interstate conference basketball bunt- 
ing this year. 

Independence has added another 
sport to their calendar of events for 
this season. Hop Scotch is now the 
fad with many once willing students 
discovering that bruises and other 
minor injuries can be acquired in this 
"tame" game. 

The Tiger Action Club met Wed- 
nesday morning to discuss possibili- 
ties in helping prepare for the Tiger- 
ama. The meeting was called at the 
request of Pete Kahler. 

Mr. Maag's history classes were 
discussing "Teddies". When it was re- 
vealed women's underwear were called 
"teddies" in the'20's, Don Mitchell 
asked, "How did Roosevelt get mixed 
up in those".

Boley, Oklahoma, AprillO to spend 
her Easter vacation. She returned

Miniature Team 
Does Well in 
Track Meets 

Consisting of only four men, the 
Tiger track squad is doing well de- 
spite the size of the team. The four 
men making up the squad include 
Jerry Garris, Frank Baker, Pete Kah- 
ler, and Fred Menefee. 

Because of the lack of numbers, the 
A. C. tracksters failed to place high 
in the triangular meet at El Dorado, 
April 1. Hutchinson placed first with 
59 points, followed by El Dorado re- 
ceiving 51. Ark City trailed behind, 
collecting a mere 15 points. 

At the El Dorado meet, Garris 
placed second in the 220 and first in 
the 100-yard dash with a time of 10.3. 
Baker placed with the javelin throw 
and Kahler was second in the 443. 
Menefee failed to place. 

Coach "Bunt" Speer took only a 
three man team to a five school meet 
at Coffeyville, April 10, where the trio 
collected second place honors. 

Garris took first in the 100-yard 
and 200-yard dashes, and third in the 
broad jump. Kahler won first in the 
440, second in the 220, and fourth in 
the 220 low hurdles. Baker placed 
second in the javelin throw. 

Coffeyville placed first, Parsons 
third, Chanute fourth and St. Johns 


Twelve Eligible for 
Basketball Letters 

Ark City's junior college basket- 
ball squad could be a ball of fire next 
year, with seven of this year's fresh- 
men eligible for letters. 

Sophomores who received basketball 
letters last year and are eligible for 
their second letter are Johnny Gaddis, 
Fred Menefee, and Larry Penner. 

Sophomores receiving their first 
letter include Jerry Garris and Larry 

The seven freshmen who could 
make up a colorful squad next year 
are Raymond Potter, Gerald David, 
Fred Hughes, Wayne Thompson, Cecil 
Hawkins, Fred Rindt, and Frank 

These men will receive their letters 
at an award assembly later in the 
year if their scholastic ratings are 
satisfactory. The requirement is that 
the student receive ten hours of col- 
lege credit other than that for phys- 
ical education practice.

Tiger Tales Meet Mute*. Zd 

The official student publication of 
the Arkansas City Junior College, 
Arkansas City, Kansas. Issued fort-

dicated to the welfare of the student 
body it represents.

This is the final regular edition of 
Tiger Tales. It is only fitting that 
an expression of gratitude be voiced 
to those people who have helped in 
the publication of this paper. 

During this last semester a com- 
pletely new staff has operated Tiger 
Tales. Putting out the school paper 
has been a new and exciting exper- 
ience to each of these six persons. 
Yes, it's been hard at times, when 
they all feared that the paper would 
fail to appear because one of them had 
failed in their task. But somehow the 
paper managed to appear on the right 
day. And looking back over this sem- 
ester's work it would seem as if the 
staff had completed a fair job. For 
this task they should be rewarded. 

All the glory and honor does not 
fall to the staff, however. In the print 
shop many students operate the lino, 
type machine, proof read, and set 
copy. They range from junior high 
students to members of our junior 
college. They, too, deserve a round 
of applause for their work and effort. 

Still other persons enter into our 
discussion. Students of junior college 
classes help to fill the paper by giving 
helpful tips for interesting stories and 
funny happenings for the buzz column 
to the Tiger Tales reporters. 

Teachers help the paper by telling 
staff members of the numerous pro- 
jects carried on in their classes and 
by enumerating the possibilities of- 
fered in their particular field. 

Last, but far from least, we wish to 
thank Tiger Tales' editoral sponsor, 
P. M. Johnson, and A. F. Buffo, mech- 
anical sponsor. Without their assis- 
tance it is doubtful that the paper 
would ever appear. It is Mr. Johnson 
or Mr. Buffo who help us when we 
find ourselves in a tight pinch. They 

Our Mr. Ed for this week is Glenn 
Burns, a graduate of the local high 
school. He is now a sophomore in 
junior college. 

Glenn attended junior college for 
one year in 1947 and then enlisted in 
the armed service. He served eighteen 
months in the service and did not 
return immediately to school. 

When asked why he wanted to re- 
turn to school Glenn replied, "I 
wanted to receive my diploma, and 
I knew more education would help me 
receive a commission from the Santa 
Fe." After graduation Glenn hopes 
to become a clerk for the Santa Fe. 
He is graduating in a liberal arts 

Glenn lacks one half inch of being 
six feet tall, tie weighs 165 pounds 
and has blond hair. Glenn is married 
to the former Betty Oliver, also a 
graduate of the junior college. They 
have one son, Glenn Stephen, who is 
two and a half years old. 

In a color scheme, blue rates tops 
with Glenn, and his favorite food is 
milk. He likes all kinds of music and 
is a talented singer. Glenn also played 
with the football squad at the beginn- 
ing of the year and is now a member 
of the tennis squad. 

Meet M>U GaXd 

Our Mrs. Co-ed of this week is 
Mrs. Helen Beatson Kirk. She is 5 
feet, 6 inches tall, has brown hair and 
hazel eyes. She was graduated from 
the local high school with the class of 
'44 and from junior college in '46. In 
December of 1948 she was married to 
Richard Kirk at the Presbyterian 
Church. He is also a graduate of the 
Arkansas City high school and of the 
junior college with the class of '42. 
He is now employed as an insurance 

Helen is a special student and 
majoring in teacher training. She is 
a member of the Future Teachers and 
secretary of that chapter. She hopes 
to get a position as teacher next year. 
She does not advise college attendence 
after marriage, though it has worked 
out nicely in her own case. 

The Selective Service College Qual- 
ification test was given for the second 
time this year April 24 at 9 a.m. 
Gene Scroggins and Charles Heffner

Dr. Raymond A. Schwegler, clinical 
psychologist for the city schools, made 
his final appearance of the year in 
the local high schools and junior col-

day through Friday counseling with 
students and groups of teachers. 

The junior college French Club held 
it's regular meeting at the home of 
Jeanette Gowan and the vice-presi- 
dent, Helen Gochis, presided. After

operate the linotype, do all the odd 
jobs and yet, their names do not even 
appear on the paper anywhere. 

So, to Mr. Johnson, Mr. Buffo, the 
staff, the print shop, the students, 
and the teachers, may I extend an 
appreciative hand for the help you 
have given me. I hope Tiger Tales 
will receive the same type of co- 
operation when it again appears next

Fred Menefee has found a new solu- 
tion for getting out of tests. He told 
Mr. Day he was going down the drain 
if the test got too hard. Mr. Day re- 
plied, "Yes we have lost quite a few 
students that way."

F.T.A. Attends 
Annual Spring 

Ten members of the C. E. St. John 
Chapter of Future Teachers of Amer- 
ica were guests at the Arkansas City 
Teacher's Association's annual spring 
dinner and program. April 23, at the 
First Presbyterian church. 

Dr. Haskell Pruett, head of the 
Visual Aid Department at Oklahoma 
A. & M. College, Stillwater, was guest 
speaker. His subject, "Appreciation of 
God's Beautiful World", was devel- 
oped by use of color slides typical of 
the four seasons. Each season was 
pictured with different phases of that 
season. For apt illusti-ation he com- 
pared the sunset with the life of a 
retiring teacher. The thought was 
complemented by the song, "At the 
End of a Perfect Day", sung by 
Charles Hinchee. The sunrise scenes 
symbolized the new teachers just en- 
tering the profession. 

Recognition was given to a retiring 
teacher, Miss Pearl Lock, by Miss 
Mary Margaret Williams, president of 
the association, and Bob Woods, pres- 
ident of the Board of Education. 

Lyda Vickery To 
Teach Otto School 

Lyda Vickry has been accepted by

Two other junior college education 
students, Betty Stockton and Helen 
Beatson Kirk, will have completed 
their teacher-training course and will 
receive 60-hour teaching certificates 
when they graduate this month. Hel- 
en plans to teach but has not found a 
school close enough to Arkansas City 
to suit her. Betty is planning to con- 
tinue her education. 

Lyda may teach two years on her 
certificate. After which time she will 
have to earn eight more college credit 
hours. All three are members of the 
Future Teacher organization. 

A constitution was adopted by the 
C. E. St. John chapter of future teach- 
trs at their regular meeting April 15. 
Plans were made for the May meeting 
which is to be a covered dish dinner 
with high school seniors interested 
in teaching as invited guests.

Tiger Cindermen 

Bunt Speer's juco track squad has 
record breaking as its object and are 
not particular how many records fall 
beneath the Tigers' paws.

ning the 440. 

Besting the former record of 10.5, 
Garris ran the 100-yard dash in 10.3. 
Garris also smashed the old 220 re- 
cord of 23.9 with an amazing 22.7. 
Kahler lowerd the old 440 record of 
53.1 with a 52.4 time.

Coach R. C. Judd has a record to be 
proud of. Since 1946, the Tiger team

tied 4. Also coaching the Ark City 
Bulldog squad, Judd has lost only 9 
matches out of 45 played since 1942.

Boosted by 
Chorus Trips 

That a developing interest of high 
school seniors in the Arkansas City 
junior college is evident as the after- 
math of the annual college chorus 
trips to towns in the surrounding area, 
is the belief of Dean K. R. Galle, after 
a week of visiting area high schools. 

The group of juco students made 
their third trip May 7, when they 
went to Caldwell and South Haven. 
Additional numbers arranged for the 
program were solos by Gerry Bartlett; 
a new school song written by C.L. 
Hinchee and sung by the chorus; and 
a feature attraction by Fred Rindt and 
Johnny Gaddis, in which they present- 
ed a hill-billy number, a drum solo, 
and an accordion-drum arrangement 
of "Sin". 

The juco students made their final 
trip Monday evening when they tra- 
veled to Chilocco. This program will 
also be presented to the Arkansas 
City senior high student body. 

Dean Galle reports that students 
from Oxford, Cedar Vale, South Ha- 
ven, Atlanta, and several other towns 
already have visited the office for in- 
formation concerning- pre-enrollment. 
Other students have written in regard 
to bulletins and other information. 

Local pre-enrollment started this 
week for the seniors and junior col- 
lege freshmen. 


Juco Graduates To Receive 
4-Year College Diplomas 

Many of the junior college grad- 
uates who have gone on to school will 
graduate from four-year colleges this 
spring. They are now attending 
schools all over the United States. 

Warren Isom will receive his A. B. 
in actuary science from Drake Uni- 
versity. John Hollenbeak is graduat- 
in from Kansas State in engineer- 
ing. Maellen Bossi and Jacqueline 
Crews will receive degrees from KU

Hinchee and Whaley Present 
New Alma Mater for College 

A new Alma Mater song has been 
written for the junior college by C. L. 
Hinchee, vocal music instructor. 

Words and melody of the song were 
written by Mr. Hinchee, while the ac- 
companiment was arranged by Mary 
Whaley. The words of the song are 
printed below: 

Oh here's t« thee our junior college 
Whose halls we love so well. 
In our hearts fond memories 
Of thee will ever dwell. 

The orange and black are colors 

That wave so proudly here. 
So hail to thee, oh hail to thee, 
Our school we hold so dear. 

Jungle Beat of 
1952 Tigerama 
Nears Readiness 

The flurry of preparation for the 
annual Tigerama reached a cresendo 
this week as committees completed

Enrollment Is Ag, Carpentry Classes 

Up 50 Per Cent 
Over Last Year 

One hundred eighty-five sopho- 
mores, freshmen, and special students 
proudly call the new ACJC their edu- 
cational headquarters for the '52-'53 
season, constituting a fifty per cent 
gain over last year. 

"This is not the largest enrollment 
in the history of the junior college, 
neither is it the smallest," Dean K. 
R. Galle said today, "The college en- 
rollment, between 250 and 300 stu- 
dents, was at its peak during the 
years immediately following the war, 
a large proportion of the students be- 
ing veterans. But at one time, during 
the war years, the enrollment stood 
between 75 and 80 students." 

Dean Galle believes the college en- 
rollment is very good in comparison 
to similiar junior colleges over the 
state. He also noted a gain of 60 to 65 
persons over last year's enrollment. 
This is due to a large number of out- 
of-town students. 

The college boasts new students 
from Texas to Oregon,, natives from 
Newkirk to Winfield. Those students 
coming from towns over Kansas in- 
clude Jim Reed, Frank Scarth, Evelyn 
Parker, Jack King, all from Winfield; 
Don Blair, George Blair, Lynn Brown,

Into New Building 

The new trade school building just 
north of the Juco building is already 
in use with the vocational agriculture 
department holding classes in the 
west end. 

Carpentry classes expect to move 
into the east end of the building 
sometime this week. New equipment 
has been bought for the carpentry 
shop and is expected to arrive some- 
time this week according to Carl Hol- 
man, head of the industrial arts de- 

The old shop building which was 
used last year by the agriculture clas- 
ses will not be used this year but will 
be remodeled and prepared for a new 
course in auto mechanics for the 
1953-54 school year. 

All other Junior College shop clas- 
ses will remain in the basement of the 
Junior High School.

Collegians Show Approval 
Of New College Building 

At last! After years of speculation 
hopes, tears, and labor Arkansas City 
has finally opened its new Junior

There have been many comments

in these were gripes about the ab-

Below are some comments made 
to Tiger Tales reporters in a poll

Broncs First 
Juco Victims 
Of Speermen 

A highly determined and spirited 
Tiger squad upset a strong Garden 
City crew to open the season Friday 
night with a 14-7 football victory. 

Taking advantage of a Tiger 
fumle on the Bengals' own 23-yard 
line the Busters scored first. The con- 
version was good and Garden City 
led 7-0 going into the second quarter. 

The Tigers evened up the score 
early in the second stanza when Don 
Neal gathered in a pass from Gary 
Thomas, who raced to the Garden 
City 15, and J. C. Louderback hit 
Jim Reed with a pass and Reed 
carried the ball over for the Tigers. 

Clarence Milbourn booted the extra 
point for the Tigers. 

Both teams battled to a standstill 
for the remainder of the second 
quarter and all through the third per- 

With only nine minutes remaining 
in the final period, Neal caught an- 
other pass from Thomas, thrown from 
the Garden City 47-yard, line. 

Milbourn made his third successive 
extra point kick of the season to close 
out the scoring. 

Coach Bunt Speer said that if any 
one thing could account for the vic- 
tory it was the spirit and determina- 
tion which the members of the Tiger 
squad displayed from start to finish 
in the game.

Bengals Trip Alumni 
In Season Opener 

The Juco Tigers defeated the Alu- 
mni 7-0 September 12, in a loosely 
played game at Curry field. It was the 
first Tiger win in the three years of 
the classic. 

Despite a severe case of "fumblitis" 
the Tigers outgained the Alumni in 
the first half but failed to score. In 
the final half of play the Alumni 
came to the fore in yardage but Don 
Neal, fleet halfback for the Tigers, 
reeled off 47 yards, the longest run 
of the game, going off tackle from 
his own 2i.'. 

From the Alumni 25, gains made 
by Neal and Bob Williams, Tiger full- 
back, brought the ball do^'n to the 
Alumni six with less then three min- 
utes to go in the game, fom'th down 
coming up, and three yards to go for 
fir'~t down. 

Tiger quarterback J. C. Louderback 
threw a jump pass to Jim Reed, left 
end, in the flat, and Reed scampered 
across the goal line untouched. Clar- 
ence Milbourn converted for the extra 
point to close out the scoring.

Jiad 91 £a Qaad! 

After 30 years of furthering the 
education of students in a basement 
university, our junior college is at last 
established in a building of its own. 

We, the freshmen and sophomores 
of 1953, are the first people to use 
this building and its classrooms as a 
place for gaining knowledge. 

Let's take a look around and see 
what other advantages the building 
offers. See how clean and pretty the 
walls are; how smooth the new fur- 
niture in the rooms is; how well the 
new lighting aids our reading; and 
how clean the restrooms are? 

Do you remember the dingy walls 
in grade school and even those in 
high school with hand prints on 
them ? Remember how you used to 
write the answers for tests on those 
initial carved desks and how they 
always tore your paper? Remember 
how you strained your eyes for 
enough light to read your lesson ? 
Remember how dingy the restrooms 
were ? 

Shall we each and every one try not 
to be the first ones to make smudges 
on these pastel colored walls, and 
shall we try to use our knives for a 
useful purpose, keeping the tables 
as they are? 

Most students of our junior college 
have never attended a new building 
nor have known the joy of studying 
and working in a bright room. Most 
of the schools we have attended have 
been old and many have been badly 

Shall we let our new junior college 
settle into this state of abuse or 
shall we strive to keep it clean so 
that even those who tread these halls 
after us may know the thrill of at- 
tending the "new" ACJC? 

Juco never had it so good. Shall we 
keep it that way? 

s Aim of Tigerlartd 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
offers a wide variety of extra-curricu- 
lar activities which are open to the 
entire student body. Students are 
urged to take part in one or more of 
these organizations. In order to better 
acquaint new students. Tiger Tales 
presents here a review of some of 
these school activities. 

Student Council 

The governing body of the junior 
college is called the Student Council. 
Its constitution and by-laws were ac- 
cepted by the student body in 1947. 

It is composed of president, a soph- 
omore elected by the student body; 

two representatives from each of the 
freshman and sophomore classes; one 
representative from each of the spon- 
sored organizations, other than de- 
partmental organizations; one repre- 
sentative from each council standing 
committtee; and a faculty adviser. 

Committees include the social com- 
mittee, whose duty is to plan and di- 
rect all student socials; program com- 
mittee, whose duty is to plan and di- 
rect all assembly programs; clubroom 
committee whose duty is to provide 
for care and maintenance of clubroom 
and enforce clubroom rules; finance, 
whose duty is to operate concession 
stands and be in charge of all other 
financial projects. Members of the 
committees are selected by the stud- 
ent council, and chairmen are ap- 
pointed by that body. 
T. A. C. 

The history of the Tiger Action 
Club goes back to the year 1947. This 
organization was the first of its kind 


in the Arkansas City Junior College, 
and was open to all members of the 
student body. Its purpose is the gen- 
eral promotion of activities and 
school prestige. 

The association is not merely an 
athletic cheering section, but aims to 
arouse interest and pep in all school 

The functions of the Tiger Club are 
to prepare pep assemblies, assist in 
the promotion of the sale of play 
tickets, arrange to have usherettes 
for school affairs, help operate the 
refreshment stand at all games, to 
take charge of the coronation of the 
basketball queen, and to assist in any 
other school promotion. 

Tiger-head emblems in the school 
colors were ordered for the club mem- 
bers, to be sewn on white sweaters. 
The emblems are not property of the 
members, but belong to the student 
body. Deposit for the emblem is 
$1. 75. When the emblem is turned in 
one dollar will be refunded or a small 
souvenir emblem issued. 

The name for the TAC was selected 
by members of the student body. A 
committee was chosen to select a 
name from thos % e students sug- 


gested. Chairman of this committee 
was Norman Byers, class of 1948. 

Peggy Sullivan was elected presi- 
dent _ of the booster club for 1947-48. 
Presidents for the following years 
were Phil Parker, 1948-49; Ardelia 
Reser.1949-50; Helen Ramsev, 1950- 
51; Pauline Hall, 1951-52. The faculty 
sponsor for the group is J. Kelsey 
Day, science instructor. 

The Tiger Action Club is open to 
both men and women. 

Largunge Organizations 
The French Club, German Club, 
and Spanish Club, extra-curricular 
tctivities for language students of 
the junior college, provide a variety 
of entertainment at their monthly 

With Miss Anne Hawley as sponsor, 
the groups elect their own officers. 
After the business meetings, the 
groups usually participate in games 
rl:>yed in French, German, and Span-

the Twelfth Night dinner celebrating 
the twelfth day after Christmas, the

at that time. One great event of the 
evening is the finding of the bean that

High School bands from cities a- 
round Arkansas City have been in- 
vited to attend the afternoon concert. 

The navy band has been in exist-

recognized it as the Navy's own. 
Every year since then, except during 
the war, the band has made a tour 
of the United States.

Kans., now is serving with the 45th 
Infantry Division on the Korean 
western front. 

The 45th was the fii'st national 
guard division to enter combat in 
Korea. Its most recent action has 
been in the bloody, see-saw battle for 
Old Baldy, a strategic hill west of

ing the bean chooses a mate for the 
king or queen and rule over the even- 
ings entertainment. 

The Germans, being hearty eaters, 
usually sponsor an early morning 
breakfast each year. The students al- 
ways enjoy seeing the sun rise and 
smelling food cooking over an open 
fire. Last year it was a treat to have 
Joe Trimper, a native of Germany, 
attend the club meetings. 

The highlight of the Spanish Club 
is the breaking of the pinata, a dec- 
orated jar or bag filled with goodies. 
This happy occasion usually occurs 
during the Christmas festivities or at 
a birthday party. Last year the Span- 
ish Club also attended a Spanish 
Dinner and program given by the 
Winfield Spanish Club.

The C. E. St. John chapter of the 

Future Teachers of America was 
founded in the fall of 1951 and named 
after the retired superintendent of 
schools. It is chartered by the nation- 
al organization. Officers elected were 
Dorothy Slaven, president, and Helen 
Jane Kirk, secretary. Barbara Thom- 
as was elected vice president and 
holds the office of president for '52- 

Future Teachers aim to (1) foster 
personal growth, (2) plan profession- 
ally challenging projects, and (3) 
help interest students of high school 
and college in exploring teaching as 
a career. 

The FTA movement grew out of 
the Horace Mann Centennial in 1937, 
when it was established by the Na- 
tional Education Association. It is 
on as a cooperative project by the 
NEA and its affiliated state and loc- 
al associations. It seeks to find and 
train leaders. 

Howard W. Park, education in- 
structor, is the head sponsor. He is 
assisted by Miss Mary Margaret Will-

Junior College 
Band Organized 

"This year's addition of the junior 
college band is the best we have had 
since it was first organized in 1949," 
stated August Trollman, band direc- 

The band has 28 members, who 
meet for practice sessions at 7:30 on 
Monday evenings and 9:48 Wednesday 

Band uniforms, which are not yet 
complete, consist of black trousers, 
with an orange stripe down the leg 
and a white sweater bearing the Tig- 
er emblem. The trousers were pur- 
chased three years ago and according 
to Mr. Trollman the group is now try- 
ing to raise funds to buy coats and 
hats to complete the uniforms. 

The band is very active in school 
affairs. It has already played at two 
pep assemblys, two football games 
and the snake dance.

Tigers Scratch 
n Lopsided Tilt 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers won their third straight vic- 
tory of the season September 26, de- 
feating the Fort Scott Greyhounds 
here, 52 to 0. 

With eight minutes left in the first 
period, Don Neal, Tiger halfbacK, 
slanted off right tackle to score the 
first Tiger touchdown. Clarence Mil- 
bourn kicked the extra point. As the 
first period drew to a close Lynwood 
Burns intercepted a Fort Scott pass 
on the local 35-yard line and ran 65 
yards for the TD. J. C. Louderback 
took a bad pass from center and ran 
the ball across for the extra point. 
The score at the end of the first per- 
iod read 14 to 0, Tigers. 
Roe Hits 'Em 
Fort Scott took the kickoff for the 
second period but a savage tackle by 
C. W. Roe forced the Greyhounds to 
fumble, with the ball rolling 20 yards 
to the point of recovery. 

On the first play of the second per- 
iod. Bob Williams, fullback, crashed 
his way through the center of the line 
for live yards and the TD. Milbourn's 
attempt for the extra point was no 
good, and the score was 20-0. At the 
end of the first half Louderback 
threw a pass to Neal, who scampered 
across the goal line for six points. 
Milbourn's try for the extra point was 
good, and the Tigers' led 27-0. 
Milbourn Kicks Again 
To open the second half Bob Will- 
iams smashed down the center from 
12 yards out and the counter. Mil- 
bourn's kick for the extra point again 
failed and the score read 33-0. Shortly 
before the third period ended, Loud- 
erback passed to Norwood in the flat 
who went across for the six points. 
Neal this time kicked the extra point 
and the score was 40-0 in favor of 
the Tigers. 

The final quarter went along with 
no scoring until the final four min- 
utes, when Thomas hit Maxwell with 
a pass which was good for seven 
yards and the six points. Neal's kick 
was no good. With two minutes left 
to play, Norwood broke off left tackle 
and swirled his way for 1G yards and 
the six points. The score then read 
52 to in favor of the Tigers.

A most pleasant and enjoyable in- 
crease in pep, enthusiasm and school 
spirit of ACJC has been noted by the 
sophomores for the '53 season. 

The huge turn out for the snake 
dances, pep assemblies and after- 
game socials indicates the willingness 
for students to co-operate in making 
our college life a more exciting and 
fun packed experience! 
Let's keep up the good work in the 
future, shall we? Remember Confuci- 
us say: "Nothing so good that it 
could not be better!"

Have you noticed how dirty the 
club rooms are ? 

The reason is because there is no 
janitor service down there and stu- 
dents themselves make little effort to 
help the club room committee keep 
the room clean. 

Lets put papers and candy bar 
wrapers in trash cans where they 
belong and return empty pop bottles 
to their cases. 

If we all do our part we will have 
a cleaner and better place for rec- 


Another of those swell after-game

to continue keep coming and tell the 
social committee what a job they are 


One of the nice things about NOT 
being Queen Alalah is that one doesn't 
have to arrange for a new formal. 

Have you heard the sweet notes of 
a trumpet coming from the auditor-

Bohannon practicing. 

Now that the. five candidates are 
named they know which ones to speak 
to. Kitty! Kitty! 

A new coke machine has been in- 
stalled on a rental basis to see of we 
can sell enough pop to equal the 
monthly payments of approximately

One of the tall, handsome fresh- 
man boys that all the ACJC girls are 
drooling over is Reece Bohannon. 

Bohannon, who is 6 feet, 2 inches 
tall and weighs 178 pounds, comes 
to us from Cdar Vale high school 
where he lettered in football, bas- 
ketball and track. This freshman who 
is going to school on an athletic- 
scholarship has one of the more inter- 
esting jobs given to athletes. He 
is a night fireman, sleeping at the 
fire station and eating at the hospital. 
He also works at the Home National 
Bank afternoons and Saturdays. 

Bohannon says his only hobbies are: 
hunting and girls. His pet peeve is 
high school kids who set bonfires 
ahead of time.

According to Educational Testing

isters the College Qulification Test 
for the Selective Service System, it 
v\ ill be greatly to the student's ad- 
vantage to file his application at once, 
regardless of the testing- date he 
selects. The results will be reported 
to the student's Selective Service local 
board of jurisdiction for use in con- 
sidering his deferment as a student. 

The Ice Man Cometh 

With all the ice that is floating- 
around the halls of Ark City Junior 
College one would think it wouldn't 
be as hot in our school as it has been. 
The following girls are wearing new 
decoration on their left haids: Donna 
Winters, Margaret Dempsey, Donna 
Lou Cowardin, Evelyn Wood and Ed- 
na May Hanson. 


Meet MUl Ga-Zd 

There is among the flirting females 
in the halls of ACJC one Adella Met-

Grizzlies Hand 
Tigers First 
Loss of Season 

The El Dorado Grizzlies handed 
the Tigers their first defeat of the 
season, October 11, at Curry Field, 
by a score of 32 to 7. 

After El Dorado scored two fast 
touchdowns, one on the ground and 
one through the air, the game set- 
settled down to a test of endurance 
and reserve strength, with the lid 
blowing off in the third period. 

The Tiger offense failed to click 
early, and a punt rolled dead on the 
Grizzlie 33. From here El Dorado 
rolled to their first counter with Paul 
Dennis, halfback, going 55 yards off 
right tackle for the six points. The 
extra point kick was no good. 

On the fourth play after the kick- 
off, the Tigers fumbled and El Dorado 
recovered on the Arkansas City 48. 
Ten yards through the line set up a 
touchdown pass play, from Larry 
McKown to Frank Doll. 

In the third period El Dorado took 
the kick-off and drove straight down 
the field for the TD, McKown going 
off right end for two yards. Again 
Garland's kick was no good. Minutes 
later McKown passed to Doll on the 
Tiger 26. Doll, hit hard, lateralled off 
to Frank Highberger, who went the 
rest of the way. Garland kicked the 
extra point and the score was 25 to 0. 

Marching to the Grizzlies' 3-yard 
stripe, the Tigers took to the air, and 
Neal was thrown for a loss back to 
the 8-yard line after taking a flat 
pass from Louderback. Williams 
cracked the line for three but El Dor- 
ado took over on downs to end the 

Early in the fourth period, El Dor- 
ado took over a Tiger bobble on the 
local 45 and marched for the six 
points, with Dan O'Brien going over 
from the four. Garland's kick was 

Bob Williams, Bengal fullback, 
scored the single Tiger tally in the 
final period after sparking a drive 
from the Tiger 36 on a kick-off. Don 
Neal kicked the extra point. 

The Tigers had 19 first downs com- 
pared to 16 for El Dorado. In rushing 
the Tigers made 282 yards while El 
Dorado had 383. On passing the 
Tigers attempted 14 and completed 
5 and El Dorado attempted 8 and 
completed 3.

Her attendents were Donna Hill, Bar-

Toby Wright was the master of 
ceremonies who introduced the twenty 
four visiting queens and the five

council and college sophomore, had 
the honor of crowning Helen Queen

A Coronation Ball in honor of 
Queen Alalah and her court followed 
the program. It began with a Grand

tjott Can Be A tftlemi 

We, meaning all the students in 
Junior College, have a wonderful new 
building to go to this year, a good 
football team, the assurance of a 
good basketball team, competent stu- 
dent officers, and teachers worthy of 
the highest praise. We also have as 
many students activities as the stu- 
dents could possibly ask for. 

Then what's wrong ? 

It's hard to sty exactly, but a good 
answer would be that you, the stu- 
dents, still don't know each other well 

It's hard to say exactly, but a good 
atmosphere is one of the most impor- 
tant parts of school life, both in the 
classrooms and out. It's no fun to go 
to class, sit in a corner by yourself 
and never talk to anyone except the 
teacher to answer a question. Nor is 
it any fun to walk down the hall and 
not have anyone stop you to tell a 
new joke they just heard, or have 
anyone holler from the other end of 
the hall, to come on ». wnstairs and 
lose a game of ping-pong. 

Isn't there someone who sits next 
to you in a class, who looks as though 
he might feel a little "left out"? Why 
don't you just try leaning over and 
saying a few friendly words, and see 
if he doesn't act pleased? 

Isn't there someone who you never 
see downstairs? A good bet is that 
he has never had anyone ask him to 
go downstairs, and he doesn't want 
to go down by himself and stand on 
the sidelines and just watch. Next 
time you start down to play some ping 
pong or just to get a coke, ask some- 
one you have never seen down there 
to go with you.

Did you feel a breeze go by lately 
and didn't know what it was or where 
it went? Probably it was none other 
than Linwood Burns, who always 
seems in a hurry. He was born in 
Wewoka, Okla., on the night of July 
20, 1934. 

After graduating from Wichita 
East last year he enrolled in junior 
college here in Arkansas City. Even 
though he likes all sports, his great- 
est ambition is to become a radio 
announcer. He is preparing for the 
job by taking as many physical ed- 
ucation courses as he can. 

This 5 feet 11 inches hur.k of man 
weighs 179 pounds, has black hair 
and eyes and his only pet peeve is 
"silly women". 

Some of his favorites are: sleeping 
as a pastime; Ann Blyth as a favorite 
actress; James Cagney as an actor; 
Stan Kenton, who ranks tops in the 
field of bands; yellow as a favorite 
color; and in the field of music his 
favorite song is "Faith Can Move 
Mountains"-. . , -

Indy Pirates 

Are Final 

Grid Opponents 

One of the oldest Kansas junior col- 
lege rivalries dating from the early 
20's will be resumed November 13 
when the Tigers travel to Indepen- 
dence to meet the Independence Pi- 
rates. It will mark the last game of 
the season for both teams. 

In regular season play up to last 
week Pirates had a 4-2 record, losing 
only to the Bacone Indians of Okla- 
homa 46-6, and the El Dorado Grizz- 
lies 26-7. The Pirates this season hold 
wins over Coffeyville 13-7, Joplin 46- 
0, Parsons 33-13, and the Pittsburg 
State "B" team 38-6. The Pirates have 
two remaining games left. One is with 
the Dodge City Conquistadores on 
November 8 and the other with the 
Tigers November 13. 

In recent years when the two teams 
have met, the Pirates have proved to 
have the much stronger teams. In 
1946 the Tigers defeated the Pirates 
by a score of 13-0. In 1947 the Pirates 
defeated the Tigers 20-0, and in 1948 
by a score of 14-12, in 1949 by a score 
of 21-13 and in 1950 by a score of 
7-6. In 1951 the two teams didn't meet 
because the Tigers did not have en- 
ough men out for football and a num- 
ber of injuries forced the Tigers to 
give up the sport. 

Five Tiger stalwarts complete their 
juco grid careers in the Independence 
contest. They are Clarence Milbourn 
and Frank Baker, halfbacks; Jerry 
David, end; Dick Reinking, tackle; and 
Ted Purvis, guard.

One of the most thrilling perform- 
ances of the season was turned in 
by Bob Williams in the Dodge game 
in his power plunges. His "personal 
statistics" were as follows: 

Williams carried the ball 19 times, 
gained 82 yards and lost 2 for an av- 
erage of 4.21 yards per carry. He 
caught two passes, one a screen pass 
that he ran for 19 yards and the other 
a flat pass that netted only one yard. 
On the one kickoff he received, Will- 
iams returned the ball for 13 yards.

Tigers Lose 
Final Home Tilt 
To Dodge City 

In their last home game of the 
season the Arkansas City Junior Col- 
lege was defeated by the Dodge City 
Conquistadores here October 24, at 
Curry Field by a score of 20 to 7. 

Dodge City received the opening 
kick-off and marched to a TD with 
comparative ease. The touchdown was 
made by Russ Chezen on a final 36- 
yard gallop over own right tackle. 

Arkansas City came back to re- 
ceive the kick-off on their own 20 
where Thomas took it and ran back 
to the 25. On the next play Louder- 
back threw a pass to Thomas for 9 
yards and a series of running plays 
by Neal and Williams took the ball 
to the Dodge City 20 where they 
were stopped and Dodge took over on 

Midway through the second period, 
the Tigers put together a 62-yard 
drive through the air and on the 
ground to count, with Bob Williams 
the workhorse. Don Neal went around 
right end and apparently failed to 
gain the first down but a measure- 
ment, gave the Tigers their first 
down. J. C. Louderback smashed a- 
cross for the TD. Don Neal kicked 
the extra point. 

Dodge City received to open the 
second half and marched 74-yards 
to the TD. Casper Jacobs climaxed 
the drive with a five yard smash off 
right tackle for the score. Collier 
kicked the extra point with the ball 
bouncing off the cross arms and 
through the uprights. 

Early in the final period Gary 
Thomas intercepted a Dodge City pass 
on the local 16. Boyd, Conq quarter- 
back, went over from three yards out. 
The try for the extra point was no 
good, and the score read 20 to 7.

By 25-13 Count 

The Arkansas City Tigers snapped 
their two game losing streak last 
Thursday as they defeated the Par- 
sons, at Parsons, by a score of 25 to 

In the first quarter both teams bat- 
tled on fairly even terms but neither 
could muster a score. On the first 
play of the second quarter however, 
Don Neal slanted off left tackle for 
10-yards and the six points. Mil- 
bourn's kick was no good. The counter 
was set up on a 22-yard gallop a- 
round left end by Frank Baker. 

Arkansas City kicked off to Cardi- 
nals and held them to one first down. 
Sonny Cole pounced on a Cardinal 
bobble and the Tigers took over on 
their own 45. Four plays later, the 
Tigers took to the air for 36-yards 
and the six points. Jim Reed gathered 
in the aerial from Louderback. Again 

The Tigers kicked off to open the 
third period and Norwood dropped on 
a Cardinal fumble on the Parson 36. 
The Tigers were unable to click and 
the Cardinals took over on their own 
18, and marched straight down the 
field for the TD, with Stephens going 
over on a keeper from the seven. La- 
vin kicked the extra point and the 
Cardinals trailed 7 to 12. 

Parsons kicked off to the Tigers, 
and Frank Baker who recieved the 
ball on his own 20 was enabled to 
go all the way behind some fine block- 
ing by Jerry David and Richard Rein- 
king. Again Milbourn's kick was no 

The quarter ended with Ernie Hart- 
man covering the first of two fumbles 
on the Parsons 30. The Tigers were 
unable to get a drive to hold up and 
the Cardinals put together a 59-yard 
drive to count. Roche went over from 
the five yard line to cap the drive. 

The Tigers got their final score 
when J. C. Louderback crashed over 
from a quarterback sneak with one 
second remaining in the game. Neal 
kicked the extra point and the score 
read 25 to 13.

Nosey Reporter 
Finds Interesting 
Locker Contents 

While a snooping reporter was 
roaming through the halls the other 
day there were some interesting 
things discovered. There are 210 lock- 
ers and of these lockers five do not 
have locks on them; 125 are locked 
and 85 are unlocked. 

Having a peek in some of the un- 
locked lockers the reporter found the 
following facts: 

Lockers 178, 176, 170, 187, 194, 141, 
217, 138, are all very neat lockers. 

109 — Must be a athlete. At least he 
keeps his tennis shoes and trunks in 
his locker. 

117 — Looks like he studies because 
he has a lot of books. 

143- — Must like music instead of 

125 — Has a full supply of combs, a 
mirror, bottle of pills, candy bar, al- 
most anything to help your looks! 

129 — Occupant of this locker likes 
to study — one book, at least. 

134 — Throw it in, if it sticks the 
first time, ok. If not try again. 

144 — Quick close the door before 
everything falls out! 

165 — Ingredients of this locker are 
a can of paint and a brush. Could be 
she has been painting? 

166 — Here's another student who 
likes to study — one book. 

152— Oops! Dropped it! Oh well, 
leave it there and pick it up later. 

169 — 12 pencils, 2 pens. Looks like 
they do more writing than reading. 

179 — Looks like a cyclone hit this 

183 — Aspirin in bottom, books in 
top, pretty good combination. 

188 — Pencil, pencils, a whole bunch 
of pencils. 

193 — Open the door, give it a throw, 
where it lands nobody knows. 

243 — A bottle of ink and a book, 

Meet Ml. Zd 

Has Marilyn Monroe ever entered 
into your mind as being an ideal girl 
of a college student's dream ? It seems 
as if Jim Reed likes her not only as 
an actress but also as an ideal girl. 
Gary Cooper heads the list of actors, 
in his estimation. Among Jim's fav- 
orites are all sports, "You Belong To 
Me" as sung by Dean Martin, his fav- 
orite singer. Billy May's band, fried 
chicken, blue, Miss Courtright, and 
math complete his current list. 

On July 29, 1933, in Southland, Ok- 
lahoma, what is now 6 feet, 3 inches 
tall, 195 pounds heavy with brown 
eyes and hair, was born. A graduate 
of the Winfield high school, he plans 
to be a civil engineer. While in high 
school Jim lettered in football, base- 
ball, basketball, and tennis. 

He hasn't any pet peeve but as a 
hobbie he likes woodwork. Juco is 
great, he says. Jim is working at 
Wright-Burton Hardware, and stays 
at C. R. Simmon's house if any of you 
girls are interested. However Jim did 
study during the vacation due to the 
state teachers meeting.

Once upon a time, January 15, 1934, 
to be exact, a little bundle of happi- 
ness was dropped on the doorstep 
of the Estep home, this little bundle 
has grown up to be — well, she has 
grown up to the height of 5 feet, 3V 2 
inches, anyway — called Gertrude. 
Along with this height she; weighs 117 
pounds, has green eyes and brown 

Men should be warned that her 
favorite food is steak, but it's doubt- 
ful if she would let you buy her one, 
mainly because they cost too much. 
She likes red, Gary Cooper, Betty Hut- 
ton, "I'll Walk Alone", Billy Mays, 
Tony Martin, and "Bunt" Speer. Ger- 
trude's favorite subject is her free 
hours, where you will probably find 
her down in the basement at the pool 
table or ping-pong table. 

Jody Buzzi seems to be her pet 
peeve, and her ideal man, when he 
appears, will be tall, about 6 feet, and 
handsome. She thinks going to juco 
is fun. Among her favorites she likes 
basketball and golf. Gert, as she is 
called, is one of the cheerleaders. 


Happy Birthday 
Out of all the students in Junior 
College, there are only four to wish 
Happy Birthday to. These four, Lynn 
Brown, Pat Hadley, Gale V* nlloy, 
and Gerald Wilson, will be one year 
older between Nov. 21 and Dec. 1. 


"You'll change your mind," said 
Pat, when you look over our wedding- 



"Cy" Seitchick checked in at the 
junior college four weeks ago and has 
been working out with the basketball 
crew. Seitchick hails from Philadel- 
phia and after he completed high 
school, played with the Eastern Sea- 
board champions from Boiling Air 
Force base. 


"I have always maintained," de- 
clared Jim, "that no two people think 

240— Who has the soft hands? She 
must, because she has hand cream in 
her locker. 

220 — All they need is one more coat 
to make things more cozy. 

219 — Looks like they are saving 
paper sacks. 

215 — Slightly stuffed, but with some 
persuasion something else may go in. 

212 — Has some pictures — if you like 
that type, that is! 

210 — Maybe someone uses this lock- 
er. Not sure though. Just some pap- 

200 — Here is another one that has 
lotion. Bet she doesn't have red hands 

C.W.: What is the difference between 
the Northern Eskimos and the 
Southern Eskimos?" 
Donna: "I don't know. What is?" 
C.W.: "The Northern Eskimos say 
Glug, Glug, and the Southern Esk- 
imos say Glug, Glug, You All." 


A young mother came to the door of 
the nursery and noticed her husband 
standing over the baby's crib. Silently 
she watched him as he stood looking 
down at the sleeping infant. In his 
face she read wonder, doubt, and ad- 

"A penny for your thoughts dar- 
ling, she whispered. Startled, into con- 
sciousness, he blurted: "For the like 
of me, I don't see how they can make 
a crib like that for four bucks." 


One day Mr. Maag walked by a 
large fish store where a fine catch of 
codfish, with mouths wide open and 
eyes staring, were arranged. He 
stopped, looked at them and exclaimed 
aloud: "Heavens, that reminds me! I 
should be teaching my International 
World class now."

Future Teachers Enter Float 
In Annual Arkalalah Parade 

Among the numerous floats in the 
annual Arkalalah parade was one rep- 
resenting the Future Teachers of 

Built as a project of the methods 
of teaching class, the float gave train- 
ing in the arts expected of an ele- 
mentary teacher. 

The theme was, "Light the world 
by harvesting education," and was 
depicted by a large horn of plenty 
running over with pencils, books, 
rulers, and other school supplies with 
the sun rising in the background. 

Juco Scene of Royalty Tea 

Beauty and royalty filled the halls 
of ACJC on October 30 when twenty- 
four visiting queens and their moth- 
ers, two ex-queens, with the five juco 
candidates for queen and their moth- 
ers, were guests at an afternoon tea 
sponsored by the Jaycee Janes. The 
tea was held in the college reading 
room. A quick tour of the building 
was made before the visitors moved 
to the auditorium to practice. 

Student Vote Calls 
For College Annual 

Junior college students voted to 
ask the student council to set up the 
machinery necessary to produce an 
annual in a mass meeting in an as- 
sembly held November 12. Cecil 
Hawkins, president of the student 
council, presided over the meeting. 
Alan Maag, social studies and speech 
instructor, told the group of esti- 
mated financial and working problems 
in the production of a yearbook. 

In another portion of the assembly, 
group singing was led by Charles 
Hinchee, vocal instructor, accom- 
panied by Mary Whaley at the piano. 

Piano solos were given by Don Rus- 
sell, high school sophomore, and Toby 
Wright, junior college freshman.

Members of the childern's literature 
and the methods of teaching classes 
attended the production of "Snow 
White and the Seven Dwarfs," which 
was presented by the Little Theater 
of New York yesterday afternoon. 

Seymour Stitchick was recommend- 
ed to this school by Bob Sneller, juco 
graduate of 1949, who was on the 
same Air Force basketball team at 
Washington last year. 

The El Dorado Junior College's 
changes to go to the Little Rose Bowl 
were ruined when Hutchinson de- 
feated the Grizzlies, November 8, by 
a score of 34 to 21. The Little Rose 
Bowl is held at Pasadena, California. 

Found: One good-looking wind- 
breaker that has been stored in the 
clubrooms for nine weeks. Jerry Lain- 
gor and Barbara Thomas have been 
eying this jacket for many weeks 
and have now decided to flip a coin 
for the coat unless the owner claims 
it by 4 p. m.,November 21. All those 
contact a member of the Tiger Tales 
staff and give a thorough description 
of the color and the contents. 

We hope item: The Arkansas City 
Tigers will have a total of seventeen 
letterman returning for the 1953 
football season. 

Dr. Carrol Speaks 
At F. T. A. Dinner, 

Dr. Jane Carrol, head of the ele- 
mentary education department of 
Kansas State Teachers College at 
Pittsburg, described the meaning of 
friendly greetings throughout the 
world and the rising need for new 
teachers when she spoke at installa- 
tion services for new members of 
the C. E. St. John Chapter of Future 
Teachers, Nov. 14. 

The event took place at a dinner 
party held in the college assembly 
loom, where seven tables were ar- 
ranged and decorated with white lin- 
nen, red candles and a large bouquet 
of red and white mums. Small re- 
plica schoolhouses, slates and apples 
served as name cards. 

Howard Park, education instructor, 
lead group singing, accompanied by 
Mary Whaley at the piano. Slides 
of the F. T. 'A. float and other Ark- 
alalah pictures were shown by Mrs. 
Harry Orr, and Supt. J. J. Vineyard 
gave greetings. 

Duane Anstine, Evelyn Parker, Don- 
na Baxter, Rose Sherwood Jo Ann 
Bush, and Donna Hill were installed 
in a candle-light ceremony by the 
charter members. 

Pirates Defeat 
Arks by 13-0 
In Finale 

The Arkansas City Tigers, suffering 
from a bad case of fumblitis, were 
defeated by the Independence Pirates 
at Independence, November 13, by a 
score of 13 to 0. It was the final out- 
ing for each squad. 

The Bengals finished the season 
with 4 wins and 3 defeats while the 
Pirates finished the season with 5 
wins and 4 defeats. The Tigers wound 
up in a fourth place tie in the final 
unofficial standings, with the Pirates. 

In the first period Independence re- 
ceived the opening kick-off but failed 
to gain any yardage and quick-kicked 
to their own 45. After two plays the 
Arks fumbled the ball and the Pirates 
took over on the 38. From that point 
neither team was able to move con- 

In the second period Independence 
scored after taking over on downs on 
their own 28. Marching to the Tiger 
12, the Pirates tried for a field goal 
but it was nullified by an offside pen- 
alty against the Bengals. On the next 
play with a fake field goal formation, 
Jim Gill pased to Jim Ratcliff in the 
end zone for the TD. Harlin's kick 
was no good and the Pirates led 6 
to 0. 

In the final quarter the Pirates re- 
covered a Tiger fumble on the Tigers 
39-yard line and drove the distance 
for the TD. The drive was set up by 
Rakestraw, who picked large gains 
off left tackle, and the TD was scored 
by Jim Pollock going around right 
end. This time Harlin's kick was good, 
and the score read 13 to 0. 

Lafayette Norwood and Linwood 
Burns turned in excellent perform- 
ances on punt and kickoff returns. Roe 
was brilliant on defense until injuries 
forced his retirement. 

The Tigers gained 143 yards rush- 
ing while Independence gained a total 
of 240 yards. The Tigers attempted a 
total of 23 passes and completed 5, 
while the Pirates attempted a total 
of 16 and completed only 1. 

Junior College had a good turnout 
at Independence, considering the dis- 
tance and lack of rides, for the last 
football game of the season. 

In observance with National Book 
Week, Miss Ella Christenson, librar- 
ian, has a display in the trophy case. '

29 Collegians 
Sing Messiah; 
Soloist Named 

Twenty-nine Junior College students 
will be among the singing chorus in 
the coming twentieth presentation of 
Handel's "Messiah" December 14. 

Mrs. Norman Iverson has been 
named as the contralto soloist, com- 
pleting an all local-product solo 
group. She has sung this oratorio 
twice before, in 1943 and 1949. 

Other soloists, previously named, 
are Gerry Bartlett, William Guthrie, 
and Kenneth Judd. 

Mrs. Iverson, the former Jolene 
Selan, was graduated from ACHS in 
1943 and attended one year of junior 
college here before going to South- 
western College, Winfield, to study in 
the School of Fine Arts. In high 
school she was a member of tne 
chorus, the girls' glee club, sang the 
lead in an opperetta, and did solo 
work with the chorus in radio pro- 
grams. Mrs. Iverson later attended 
the Westminster Choir School, Prince- 
ton, N. J. She is active in local church 
choir and musical circles. 

The college students singing the 
oratorio, which include members of 
the chorus classes and those who have 
previously sung during high school. 
They are Barbara Upson, Peggy 
Trent, Barbara Thomas, Ross Sher- 
wood, Delores Christiansen, Emmett 
Claypool, Charles Coulter, Gertrude 
Estep, Helen Gochis, Sara Hill, Ray- 
mond Haynes, Geraldine Laingor, Dan 
Livingston, Richard Lambring, Norma 
Jean Moore, Coleen Morris, Evelyn 
Parker, Mildred Reinking, Helen Bit- 
tie, tat Hadley, Phyllis Hill, Vurlma 
Howarth, Jean Kivett, Bonnie Pan- 
cake, Wallace Stovall, Bettie Ann

Carpentry Class Completes Platform 

The carpentry class has completed 
building the new platform for the 
assembly hall and is waiting for the 
floor to ba sanded before sealing it. 

Play Of The Nativity 
For Christmas Program 

A group of junior college students 
is working on a nativity play to be 
presented December 17, in the Christ- 
mas assembly. 

"Unto Thy Doors" is a choric 
drama in one act, which will be under 
the direction of Mrs. Nevva Sartin, 
instructor in the English department. 
The complete cast has not yet been 
selected, but the childern's literature 
class will be the reading choir. 

Phyllis Hill is student chairman 
for the assembly. 

School Board 
To Purchase 
Band Uniforms 

Completion of the junior college 
band uniforms was voted at the Dec- 
ember meeting of the Board of Edu- 
cation Monday night. The board will 
purchase caps and coats to match the 
present pant furnished band members, 
Dr. J. J. Vineyard, superintendent of 
schools, reported. 

The board talked about shop 
courses and it was the general opin- 
ion that the old vocational agriculture 
shop should be made an auto mech- 
anics shop. Several other courses for 
this shop were mentioned but nothing 
definite has been decided. 

The Board talked about shop cour- 
ses and vocational agriculture, but did 
not go very far with the discussion, 
Dr. Vineyard said. 

Considered were some ways and 
means of giving carpentry students 
the chance to have some experience 
in actually building things. The 
Board hopes to make arrangements 
for them to build a house on skids, 
and when it is finished for them to 
sell it to the highest bidder. This is 
to give the students the experience 
of planning and building a house, the 
superintendent explained. 

Classes in music beside band, and 
chorus were discussed also. Offering 
of other classes will depend largely 
on the pre-enrollment for next year. 
It wdl need to be heavy. 

Don Bowman, 
Dick Lambring 
To Annual Staff 

The student council in a special 
meeting Tuesday morning elected 
Don Bowman, Richard Lambring, and 
John Shirley to top positions on the 
yearbok staff. 

Bowman was named editor, while 
Lambring is business manager with 
Shirley as his assistant. Thirty-two 
other juco students have signed up in 
the office to be on the staff. A. E. 
Maag is sponsor of the book. 

The editor's job will be to name the 
editorial staff, to plan the book, and 
to direct all editorial work. 

Lambring and Shirley will organize 
a sales campaign and recruit a staff 
of about 20 solicitors, to sell sub- 
scriptions. Tentative plans call for a 
price of from two dollars to two dol- 
lars and one-half per copy, with a 
goal of 200 sales. 

This will be the third attempt at 
publishing an annual in 30 years of 
college history. The first attempt 
came in 1924 when the "Pioneer" was 
published. There was only one edition. 
The second attempt was the "Tiger- 
ama" which was published for the 
first time in 1934. It continued to be 
published until 1941, either as a year- 
book or a semi-annual magazine. 

"In that the Student Council has 
seen fit to name me editor of the 
1953 yearbook, I naturally deem it 
an honor as well as a privilege to 
serve the student body of the college," 
Bowman said Tuesday. "I will lend 
every effort to see to it that we have 
a yearbook that will please us all. 
With your continued interest and 
help we will most assuredly succeed." 

College Activity Tickets Ready 

Activity tickets for the second sec- 
tion of the first semester are currently 
being distributed in the college office. 
First use of the ticket was for the 
opening high school basketball game 
Tuesday. College students must pre- 
sent the new ticket for admittance to 
the opening: college game December 
8, against Coffeyville.

Meet MM Ga-£d 

The fate of our nation may some- 
day rest upon the shoulders of two 
young people now attending ACJC. 
These two very brillant and select 
persons are now trying to decide 
whether they should or should not try 
to achieve the greatest honor and 
responsibility in the United States. 

Sara Anna Hill would seek the 
honor of becoming the first woman 
president of the United States if she 
and her party could retain- Jerry 
David as campaign manager. This 
tall, slender, brown-haired and brown- 
eyed girl is well prepared for the 
duties this high office would com- 
mand. She is a "genius" in math, and' 
her favorite subject is algebra. How- 
ever, rather than play the piano for 
a pastime as others before her, she 
would be content to sit for hours 
playing solitare or tiddlywinks. 

Sara, running on the "regressive 
party" ticket, would make her cam- 
paign promise two Buicks in every 
garage, lemon pop in every icebox, 
and a girls' basketball team in every 
high school and college.

Who is it 

who is a boy? 

who is the proud owner of an as- 
sortment of unusual hats, the main 
attraction of which is a large gray 
cowboy topper? 

who was recently nick -named 
"Skunky"? The reason for this al- 
most disappeared with the last hair- 
cut, but the title has stuck. 

who is so ticklish that some people 
honestly believe that the word "Tic- 
kle" would make him laugh ? 

who is a sophomore from Caldwell, 

Have you ever tried to write ?. 
research paper? Of course you have. 

A research paper is a study activity . 
for information on a given subject 
but when you go to get the material 
you cannot find the correct amount of 

Three weeks ago Mrs. Nevva Sar- 
tin's rhetoric classes were writing 
such research papers. Miss Anne 
Hawley's class has just started writ- 
ing papers which will be due by the 
time of Christmas vacation. 

Students frequently choose unex- 
pected topics. For example, Joanne 
Buzzi investigated the subject of 
"Charm" , although she has quite a 
bit of charm herself. Colleen Morris 
wrote on Alaska, because she has a 
brother stationed there, and she want- 

ed to learn more about the country. 
Leon Fitzgerald looked^ up material on 
allergies, because Viie has hay. fever, 
and wanted to find a way to cure It. 
" It r is~to be supposed that the stu- 
dents in Miss Hawley's class have 
found stranger, craizier subjects than 
in Mrs.- Sartin's. Take Dean Owen 
for example: he is writing on the 
subject of "Pigmies". This subject 
fits Dean, just fine because he is quite 
a dwarf himself. 

Corning back to the subject of 
writing a research paper, you had 
quite a bit of fun writing it didn't 
you? Well, maybe. 

It makes some students fairly sad 
when some people find more informa- 
tion than they need and they can find 
hardly any material. 

The advanced typing classes have 
been taking five-minute speed tests 
for quite a while. The reports of the 
top speeds are: Evelyn Wood, 71 words 
per minute; Helen Wing, 69 words 
per minute ;, and Bonnie Pancake, 68 
words per minute.

in the foods room. Those who attended 
the tea besides the faculty were the 
staff from the high school office, the 
staff from Dr. Vineyard's office, and 
the junior high foods teachers. 

They were served spiced cider and 
gingerbread with lemon sauce. 

who was the shortest not the light- 
est, but the shortest, boy on the foot- 
ball team? 

who always seems to be laughing 
about something ? 

who has a pair of blue and yellow 
stripped socks ? 

who everyone who knows him, likes 
him ? 

Look in the next issue of Tiger

While returning from the student 
council at Parsons Phyllis Hill saw

ture and made this brilliant statement,

The El Dorado Grizzlies won first 
place on mythical basis in the fall 
football wars, while Dodge City won 
second. The Hutchinson Blue Dragons 
were third, followed by Arkansas City 
and Independence, who tied f o r 
fourth. Coffeyville was sixth, with 
Parsons seventh, Garden City was 
eighth, and Fort Scott ninth. No of- 
ficial title was awarded.

Thoughts Expressive 
Of Thanksgiving 
Heard in Assembly 

We of the United States are not 
the first people to celebrate Thanks- 
giving, but each has something to be 
thankful for, and each may take a 
moment to express his thanks. 

Eve'-y day can be Thanksgiving 
Day for the individual who recog- 
nizes his true obligations, and thanks 
can be expressed by thoughtful sup- 
port of nation, community, and school. 

Though the Massachusetts colonists

*7<4e Real Qiyt 

Every year, just about this time, 
the holiday season rolls around once 
more. Hustle and bustle occurs every- 
where as the entire population begins 
to secure Christmas trees and to pur- 
chase timely presents for the boss, 
the wife, the husband, the children, 
brothers, sisters, parents, or friends. 

"Well I don't know what to buy 
him; he has everything." "I gave her 
something last year but she didn't get 
me anything. I'll just cross her off 
my list." "He's not worth that much." 
These and other comments till t_:e air 
at Yuletide season as shoppers select 
gifts with no love or personal mean- 
ing connected with their. All tio of- 
ten we are too concerned with gift 
buying, as an accepted practice, to 
remember the real meaning of C rist- 

Many, many years ago God was 
also looking for a gift. He wanted it 
to express His great love toward His 
people. At last, as He had long prom- 
ised, He sent His Son as that gift. So 
it was that Christ was born of Mary 
in a tiny stable at Bethlehem; and 
so it is that we celebrate Christmas, 
the birthday of Christ, by giving gifts 
as did the shepherds and Wise Men. 
But God's Son also gave us pri eiess 
gifts, which cost no money. They are 
love, friendship, cheer, and happiness. 
Have we forgotten the true meaning 
of Christmas through our fake giving 
and receiving without love? It makes 
little difference whether the gift is 
expensive or if it is worth only a 
small sum, for if love is there, Christ 
is there and so the Christmas Spirit.

French Club Plans 
Twelfth Night Banquet 

The junior college French Club met 
December 3 in the home of Miss Anne 
Hawley, sponsor. Peggy Linoh, presi- 
dent, presided over the meeting. 

Tuesday, January 6, was decided 
upon for the annual Twelfth Night 
banquet. Decorating and program 
committees were appointed for the af- 
fair. Donna Hill is chairman of the 
decorating committee, with Helen Goc- 
his end Helen Bittle to help her. Vice 
president Richard Lambring, Gerry 
Bartlett, and Dan Livingston are on 
the program committee. 

Helen Gochis was elected to fill 
the office of secretary. 

Miss Pfiscilla Laiighlin, j. c. '50, 
a former president of the French Club 
was a guest at the meeting. She is now 
a Rotary exchange student at the

Home Ec Gais Busy Little Bees 

Anyone who passes room 106 be- 
tween 1 and 2, daily, will probably no- 
tice a slight humming noise coming 
from within. Behind this door are nine 
busy little bees under the direction of 
Mrs. Belle Robertson. They are Peg;y 
Trent, Irma Wittenborn, Sara Gilbert, 
Dorellis Brown, Mildred Reinking, 
Joanna Buzzi, Sue Woodard, Barbara 
Upson, and Bar ara Thomas. 

These girls have been bustling 
around all during the school year 
serving teas, preparing class lunch- 
eons, and learning the other arts of 
serving and cooking. This week seems 
to be even more busy. The girls are 
mailing and baking the 800 cookies 
which the social committee requested 
for the college Christmas party, ami 
they also plan to fix gift boxes for 
faculty members and mothers of the 

class members. 

This is perhaps one of the most 
excising s»nd the most heartbreaking 
classes in ju;o. For it is here that the 
"ohs" and "ahs" are heard if the pro- 
duct created by "my own two little 
hands" is successful, or it is here that 
th^ expression "Will I ever learn to 
cook?" sounds forth if the product is 
a failure. 

In the future, when further devel- 
opment takes place, Mrs. Robertson 
has expressed the need of a complete 
dinning room in the space between the 
two home economies rooms. The east 
wall would be covered with drapes to 
appear as a window. The room would 
have an extension table, buffet, china, 
glassware, silver, and linen. Other 
furniture would include a stuffed chair 
and e.:d table, a magazine rack, a 
floor lamp, and light fixtures on either 
side of the drapes.

tween the two teams and is sponsor- 
ed by the Quarterback Club in order

Conference opener for the Bengals 
will be January 10 when they meet the 
El Dorado Grizzlies here. The Griz- 
zlies opened their season with a 76 to 
51 win over the Independence Pirates. 
El Dorado won the Hutchinson Tourn- 
ament as they defeated the Garden 
City Bronc Busters 47 to 41. Last year 
the Tigers won 50 to 48 there and lost 
56 to 51 here. 

The Bengals will meet the Hutch-

and fourth conference games when 
they meet the Dodge City Conquista- 
dores here January 16 and entertain 
the Garden City Bronc Busters Jan- 
uary 17. Dodge City has won three and

College Players Honored 
At Football Banquet 

Co-captains and outstanding players 
on the Tiger football squad were 
given special recognition at the Lions 
Club's seventeenth annual football 
banquet, December 9.

Eagles Tag Arks, 
57-53, for First Loss 

The St. Johns Eagles handed the 
Tigers their first defeat of the current 
season Monday night at Stewart gym, 
57 to 53. A rugged defense and re- 
bounding game, coupled with inabil- 
ity of the Bengals to hit from outside 
spelled the difference. 

The Eagles got off to a fast start 
as Otte opened the scoring with a 
driving lay-in, and the Tigers were 
never able to catch up or to go ahead 
more than momentarily, although the 
margin of lead was one to four points 
almost throughout the contest. 

Quarter scores were 17 to 13, 29 
to 28, and 44 to 40, all in favor of the 

Otte and Classen were high for the 
Eagles, with 22 and 15 points, re- 
spectively. Potter led the Arks, with 
21. Norwood and Seitehick were waved 
to the showers on five personals. 

Other Arks to see action were Dav- 
id, Burns, Hawkins, Reed, Louderback, 
and King. 


It was an all-Winfield ( as Frank 
Scarth triumphed over his fellow- 
townsman, Jim Reed, to blast his way 
to the singles championship in the an- 
nual fall table tennis tournament 

to the Blue Dragons 41 to 47. This sea- 
son the Broncs have won two and lost 
two. Last year the Busters won there 
65 to 40, and lost here bv a score of 
62 to 47. 

Playing a non-conference game and

their second meeting this year. The 
game is slated for January 20.

The two teams battled on even

Collegians Compete 
Again in Current 
Affairs Contest 

The 1953 current affairs contest, 
in its seventeenth year will be off- 
ered to those students of ACJC who 
may wish to participate. No definate 
date has been established but the test 
will be held between January 19 and 
the end of February. 

The current affairs test will be 
based on Time's winter news quiz 
and is prepared to test the student's 
knowledge, for his own benefit, on 
current news. Some classes will be 
given the test on class time. 

Awards are presented to a school 
winner, a sophomore winner and a 
freshman winner. Globes, books, and 
medals have been the prizes given in 
the past eight years in which the 
junior college has taken part. This 
year, after a preference poll con- 
ducted among teachers, the prize will 
be picked by the winner from a list 
of six books. 

Last year's winners, who were 
awarded medals, were Russell Leach, 
school; Dorothy Slaven, sophomore; 
and Jerry Anglin, freshman. Leach 
also won the top prize in 1950, as a

Freshmen To 
Experience That 
'Finals' Feeling 

The burning of a little midnight oil 
will probably be noticed next week 
throughout this fair city of ours, as 
the juco students begin to prepare for 
the "death blow". It hardly seems pos- 
sible that semester finals are here al- 
ready, but here they are. 

Anyone wandering down the hall 
could easily recognize the freshman, 
who is eagerly anticipating his first 
experience with a semester test, by 
the wobbly knees and the shaking 
hands. Sophomores are easily detect- 
too, being old hands at it, by the way 
they smile at the freshman's anxiety 
and by the calm expression on their 

Dean K. R. Galle has reported that 
tests will replace the regular class 
schedule from the noon of January 
20, to 4 p. m., January 23. Negligence 
to report for examination will not be 
excused and failure to take the test 
will result in a failing grade for the 

Schedules may be obtained in the 
college office. They include the sub- 
ject, the hour of the test, the class, 
and the room number. 

Burns and Norwood Capture 
Ping Pong Doubles Title 

The Burns - Norwood ping-pong 
doubles team reigns supreme in the 
Juco clubrooms due to the defeat they 
handed the Scarth-Reed duet in the 
finals of the doubles tournament. 

Linwood Burns and Layfayette Nor- 
wood received a bye in the first round 
while Frank Scarth and Jim Reed had 
to face the Wilson-Baker team. Other 
teams entered in the contest were 
Bowman and Eustice, who defeated 
Brown and Seitchick; and Stover and 
Claypool, who won over the Lambving 
and Hawkins team. 

In the singles tournament, as re- 
ported earlier, Frank Scarth defeated 
Jim Reed for the championship. In the 
semi-finals, Scarth defeated Linwood 
Burns and Reed eliminated Lafayette

"Should I continue my College ed- 

To many students this very question 
is staring them in the face and they 
do not know the answer. 

As a college paper we do not wish 
to tell anyone that they have to do 
anything. But may we make a few 
suggestions ? 

According to a survey by a North- 
western U. professor, graduates from 
college will have no trouble getting a 
good job. 

On the average it has been found 
that new graduates can expect from 
$300 per month on up in industry jobs, 
with technical graduates advancing 
the fastest. 

Now comes the answer given by 
many women, "But I'm going to be 
married." Marriage is a fine and high- 
ly approved institution. But someday 
tragedy might occur through death 
or injury at which time you, the wife, 
will be called upon to support your 
family. Wouldn't you rather do it 
with an adequate education? 

According to the survey made by 
Northwestern University the college 
degree is becoming more and more 
vaulable. For the last seven years 
companies have been adopting the pol- 
icy of hiring only college graduates 
for key jobs, the jobs with good op- 
portunities for advancement. 

These points in favor of a college 
education are submitted to you with 
this last one. Once you have an ed- 
ucation you may call upon it when- 
ever necessary. No one can take it 
from you.

Sociology Students Check 
Marital Possibilities of Acquaintaces 

"Do you consider love at first sight

"What do you want of marriage?" 

"Are you a good marriage pros- 

"What is your opinion on the sub-

These and many other similar ques- 
tion are floating around the halls of 
ACJC, and everywhere a person turns 
there seems to be someone taking a 
poll on the attitude of college stu- 
dents on the subject of marriage and 
family living.

Several weeks ago, after discus- 
sing family matters, Mr. Johnson pro- 
duced a "Marriage Prediction Scale" 
with questions for both the prospec- 
tive wife and the prospective husband. 
Scores ranged from 700, which in- 
dicated happiness to below 300, which 
definitely promised unhappiness. 

Sociology students tried the predica- 
tion scale with outside students, as 
well as members of the class. Some- 
times it was rather a blow to dis- 
cover that the score with a casual 
acquaintance was greater than the 
score with a "steady-freddy." At any 
rate, some serious thinking has been 
added to the rose-colored dreams of 
some students. 

Sociology is a study of society at 
large or the interaction of groups. 
Marriage and the family is only one 
phase of the sugject.

Whaley Queen, Clubroom Grows Larger 
Lambring King, Since It's "Shower Days" 

At 12th Night 

Mary Lou Whaley and Richard Lam- 
bring reigned as queen and king over 
the annual Twelfth Night Dinner, 
given January 6 by the junior college 
language clubs. 

The dinner, which was held in the 
Purity Cafe, was sponsored by the 
French Club. Peggy Linch, president 
of the French Club presided over the 
affair. Dan Livingston then told 
Twelfth Night customs in various 
countries, after which the celebration 
was carried on following the French 

Mary Lou found a bean in her cake 
and thus was queen. She then chose 
Lambring as king. The other guests 
were then required to do the bidding 
of the "royal" couple. 

Donald Russell played Debussy's 
"Arabesque," and David Holquist sang 
a solo in German. Songs played and 
verses in three languages were given 
by the group. The invocation was 
pronounced in French, German, and 
Spanish respectively by Peggy Linch, 
Emmett Claypool, and Donna Hill. 

A manger scene in the center of the 
tables depicted the coming of the 
Wise Men, which is celebrated on the 
twelfth night after Christmas and 
green and silver starshaped menus 
written in the three languages com- 
pleted the decorations. Donna Hdl 
was chairman of the decorating com- 
mittee. Lambring was chairman of the 
program committee. 

Tiny figurines were presented to 
the guets by Gustave Marter, a native 
of France. 

Dr. and Mrs. J. J. Vineyard, and 
Mr. and Mrs. K.R. Galle, Miss Hen- 
rietta Olvera, and Marter were guests. 


Dear Mr. College Hours Bureau: 

We would like to have 17 or more, 
tall or short, slender or plump, men 
or women, who would like to earn two 
college hours this next semester. We 
need editors, assistant editors, typ- 
ists, business managers, circulation 
managers, copy boys, and reporters 
for the old Alma Mater's school paper, 
Tiger Tales. 

This is a desperate cry! If you know 
anyone who could meet at 2 or 3 
o'clock during the coming semester, 
please tell them to sign their enroll- 
ment cards in the office. 

As a college we want a paper. 
(Don't we?) Could you help us?

The Junior College clubrooms have 
come a long way since the first club- 
rooms which was converted from the 
old high school shower and locker 
room in the old building. The students 
remodeled the showers into the club- 
rooms. Then the businessmen became 
interested and donated several things. 
Besides the living room suite donated 
by Newman's the student council also 
purchased two other suites. A radio 
phonograph was purchased, Carl Hol- 
man lent a ping pong table, and pop 
dispenser was added. 

On the evening of March 18, 1942, 
a social formally opened the new club- 

Meet M*. Zd 

You have heard of a "sparkling 
smile." You will find one belonging 
to a certain freshman from Cam- 
bridge. This cheerful fellow was born 
on January 18, 1933 at Cambridge. He 
has grown up to full height of 5 feet, 
10 inches, with brown hair and eyes, 
and weighs 165 pounds. 

After graduating from Cambridge 
high school he entered Arkansas City 
junior college to study to be a pre- 
troleum geologist, though his only am- 
bition is to play pro baseball, as base- 
ball is his favorite sport. 

"I have traveled from California 
to as far east as Philadelphia," says 
George Bair, better known as "Cub." 

His pet peeve is his brother. Among 
his favorites are John Wayne as an 
actor and Piper Laurie, actress. "Tell 
Me Why," rates as tops in the field 
of songs and Tex Beneke is his favo- 
rite singer. As most boys do, he likes 
any and every kind of food. The color 
blue is his choice. When asked about 
his favorite subject, he replied "Girls." 

Meet Mi4A Ca-Cd 

This bright little twin of 5 feet, 
3% inches, brown hair and eyes, was 
born on September 7, 1934 at Ar- 
kansas City, Kansas. After gradua- 
ting from junior college, she hopes 
to become a teacher. 

Basketball is her favorite sport, 
and she likes the players, too. Her 
other favorites are the color blue; 
singer Nat King Cole; actor Ray Mil- 
land; actress Elizabeth Taylor; the 
song, "Somewhere along the Way"; 
and her favorite band, Stan Kenton.

project were K. R. Galle, Ivan Upson, 
board member, Coach D. C. Stark, and 
Jean Peck, Bill Ledeker, Bob How- 
land, and the assistance of fellow 
students, Dorothy Moody, Neidra 
Waltz, George Sybrant, Bob Morgan, 

In March 1946 repairing and re- 
finishing of the furniture and ping 
pong table, redecorating the walls 
and obtaining a record holder were 
the chief goals atempted by Shirley 
Gilliland, Je a n Humphery, Dale 
Smith, Betty Smith, and Norma 

On December 18, 1948 the club- 
rooms were again redecorated. New 
furniture was purchased in,' [April, 
1950, slat chairs, table, and fou,r 
metal chairs were purchased by the 
student council. On the committee 
were Bill Himes, Marjorie Ghramm 
and Maellen Bossi. 

Once again the junior college club- 
rooms are to be painted by the 
students. There are hopes of a deco- 
rating party to be held in the near 
future for the improvement of the 
new clubrooms. Since the college is 
in a new building the decorating must 
be done over again. 

"The plans are to divide the base- 
ment into two rooms by a concrete 
wall, then to paint and decorate it 
and fix up the equipment and try 
to get another pingpong table," says 
Dick Lambring, the recreation chair- 

The duties of the chairman are to 
keep the pop machines filled, to be 
sure all the equipment is in work- 
ing order, keep the floors clean, to be 
sure the rules of the clubrooms are 
carried out, and to plan changes and 
additions to equipment.

Tigers Win 4 Contests To Sweep Bengals Meet 
Holiday Games, Lose Fore and Aft Dodge City, 

Rebounding from two losses in 
early season play, the Arkansas City 
Bengals swept through a holiday 
schedule of four contests, winning 
them all, and annexing a tournament 
trophy in the bargain. It was a de- 
termined crew that met all comers 
in the two-week campaign and they 
more than justified the faith the fans 
had placed in them. Perhaps it was 
inevitable that they should then drop 
their conference opener. 

Tigers Defeat Fort Scott 85 to 61 

Showing speed and teamwork ana 
the slickest floor play of the season, 
the Bengals defeated a highly ranked 
Fort Scott team here, January 3, by 
a score of 85 to 61. 

Scoring first the Tigers were never 
in serious trouble as they led through- 
out the whole game. The score at the 
first period was 28 to 16, the half 
46 to 39, and the third 66 to 50. This 
game marked the third straight vic- 
tory for the Bengals over the Christ- 
mas holiday. 

Potter won scoring- honors with 30 
points as Kahler of Fort Scott was 
second with 18, and David, Burns and 
Norwood contributed heavily. Also in 
the dazzling fast-break offensive were 
Hawkins, Reed, Seitchick, King and 

In the preliminary game the Tiger 
Bees defeated a determined Tisdale 
team 48 to 35. H. Cook led the scoring 
for Tisdale with 19 while Reed was 
getting twelve for the Tigers. 

Tigers Defeat Alumni 57-54 

The Tigers proved too much for the 
Alumni as they defeated the former 
students 57 to 54 here, December 26, 
in a game sponsored by the Quarter- 
back Club. 

The Bengals scored first, with 
Hawkins hitting a lay-up, but Mitchell 
hit a lay-up for the Alumni to tie the 
game. Then the Bengals jumped into 
a 22 to 5 lead at the end of the first 
period and were never threatened 
until the final period, when Allen 
Chaplin and Don Upson began hitting 
and put the Alumni ahead for the first 
time in the game. Norwood led a rally 
to put the Tigers back in front. 

Upson and Chaplin came through 
with 14 and 12 points, while Jack King 
was getting 11 for the Tigers. 

In the preliminary game the Bengal 
Bees defeated the Alumni Bees to 
keep their winning streak alive. 

Tiger and Bulldog Alumni included 
Allen Chaplin, Don Upson, Bill Bar- 
tholomew, Don Winslow, Bill Mitchell, 
John Gaddis, Gene Mueller, Larry 
Johnson, Jerry Gaddis, Jiggs Meyer,

Tigers Win El Dorado Tourney 

Hutchinson and El Dorado fell vic- 
tims to the Bengals December 29-30 
as they won the El Dorado Invita- 
tional Tournament by demonstrating 
that they could put up a sterling de- 
fense as well as mount a withering 
offensive drive. 

The Blue Dragons lost to the Tigers 
73 to 49 as they had a cold evening 
on the floor. In the first quarter the 
Dragons only hit one field goal out of 
eighteen. The Bengals were never be- 
hind as they led 19 to 8 at the end of 
the first, 39 to 26 at the half, and 
61 to 31 at the end of the third. 

Potter and Norwood shared scoring 
honors with Gary Prickett of Hutch- 
inson, each with 16. 

El Dorado fell to the Tigers the 
following night as the Bengals won 
first place by a score of 64 to 53. 

The Tigers scored first with Nor- 
wood hitting a jump shot and from 
there on it was strictly Ark City. The 
score at the end of the first was 17 to 
9, 33 to 17 at the half and 50 to 39 
at the third. It was the second loss 
for the Grizzlies in ten tilts. 

Again Potter and Norwood each 
scored 16 points to tie with Smith and 
Girrens of El Dorado.

Bengals led 22 to 14 during the first 
period and the score at the half was 
33-all. Third period score was 60 to 
50 in favor of the Cardinals. From

Make up Your Mind 
To get Along, 
Vets Tell Draftees 

That the success of an indiviual in 
the armed services depends upon how 
hard he tries was the point brought 
out most by ex-servicemen when 
asked what attitudes would best help 
boys who join or are drafted into ser- 

Wayne Rains, who served four years 
and three days in the army said, "If 
a person tries real hard and doesn't 
cuss out any officers or sergeants he 
can make a go of the army." Rains 
is a junior college freshman. 

"Keep your ears and eyes open and 
mouth shut, that's it," was the state- 
ment made by Seymour Seitchick, an 
Air Force veteran. Seichick who 
was a sergeant, spent four years in 
service. He also said that one would 
find much the same trouble in all 
branches, that being that boys are 
not used to being ordered around like 
they will be in the service. 

Ralph Ramirez, a juco freshman, 
and also a veteran of four years in 
the army said: "You don't get to think 
for yourself. There is always someone 
there to tell you what to do. A lot 
of men are bitter because of this, so 
boys should prepare themselves to 
take commands." Ramirez was a ser- 
geant first class.

Here You Are, Girls 
.—Men With New 
Furniture, Yet 

Boys in the junior college wood- 
work class, under the direction of Mc- 
Kiniey Ghramm are working on some 
might fancy projects. 

Three class members are working 
on walnut veneered cedar chests. The 
veneer is L28 of an inch thick and is 
glued to the outside of the chest, mak- 
ing it look like a walnut chest. Those 
making these chests are Verl Misak, 
John Oliver and Bob Olrnstead. 

Ray Potter is making a walnut ex- 
tension dining table, Reece Bohannon, 
a telephone stand with an upholstered 
seat, Calvin Hoekenberry is working 
on a twin chest of drawers, and Ernie 
Ilartnan a panel bed. 

Ernest Magnus, a transfer student 
from Independence, is making a cedar 
chest with scrolled legs, Charles Coul- 
ter is making a knee-hole desk, and 
Raymond Rains is making a bed-side 

These projects take a lot of time 
to complete, but when the boys have 
completed them they will have some 
beautiful furniture.

Co-eds Give School 
Children A "New Look" 

Working from the other side of the 
desk is not as simple as it appears 
to the average student as he sits day 
by day gaining knowledge under the 
guidance of the teacher at that desk. 

So it unfolds to ten college co-eds 
as they slave away studying the pu- 
pil's lesson and devising enough in- 
teresting, informative ways to pre- 
sent the problem at hand to 36 vi- 
brant children, or even more. 

With the opening of the second

The juco Tigers tucked their 13th

the second period the Tigers began 
hitting and led the Broncs at the mid- 
way point 28 to 21. 

Reed replaced the flu-struck Potter

with 18. 

Ark City Juco won the fourlh 
straight conference game on January 
22 by easily defeating a hapless Pratt 

Juco team 92-56 on the loser's home 
floor. Only a handful of spectators 
turned out to see the game. 

The Tigers put the platoon system 
into operation as two differtent fives 
alternated each quarter. The game, 
turned into a rout from the very out- 
set, as the Arks jumped into a 9-0 
lead after two minutes of play. They 
led 25-9 at the first quarter. 

In the second quarter a new five 
continued to roll up the score and 
the Tigers led 51-24 at halftime. The 
score was 63-34 at the end of the 
third quarter. Jim Reed led the Tiger 
offense with 15 points. 

Bengals Defeat Parsons 86 to 62 

Gaining revenge, the Bengals de- 
feated the Parsons Cardinals here 
January 20, by a score of 88 to 62. 

Burns opened scoring for the Ben- 
gals as he hit with a jump shot. The 
Cardinals however came back to tie 
the score at 2 to 2. The two teams 
battled on even terms during the first 
period but as the gun sounded the 
Tigers were in front 29 to 21. In the 
second period the Bengals began hit- 
ting and led the Cardinals at the rest 
period 49 to 32. In the third period 
the Bengals caught fire and enjoyed 
their largest lead of the evening

56 to 5'"!; Scarth tied for scoring hon- 
ors with Willhms of Parsons with 15 
points each. 

Overcoming a six-point defi 'it with 
only 90 seconds remaining in the ball 
game, the Tigers went on to defeat 
Garden City Juco in an overtime 
thriller, 72 to 67, Jan. 31, to break 
even in their two-day western trip. 
The night before, the Tigers let a 
12-point advantage slip away from 
them in the final quarter and 1< si 
68-67 to an inspired Dodge City team. 

In the Garden City game, Jerry 
David's jump shot in. the final se 'on'd 
tied the contest at 61-61 and forced 
the game into overtime. It was at thi - 
point that Ark City's reserve power 
payed off. Both teams hud starting 
players out on personal fouls. Led by 
the outstanding play of Lynwo >d 
Burns and little Jackie King, the

Tonight; Loop 
Play Tightens 

The Tigers return to their home 
court tonight when they meet the 
Beavers of Pratt Junior College in 
an important conference basketball 
tilt. Game time is at 8:15. 

With Ark City only one game be- 
hind El Dorado in the league stand- 
ings, and only three league games 
remaining to be played, each game is 
a "must" win for the Tigers, if they 
hope to capture the loop champion- 

Perhaps the most important game 
of the season will be played on Feb- 
ruary 13 at El Dorado. Should El Do- 
rado and Dodge City win their next 
two games, and then the Tigers whip 
El Dorado on February 13, it will 
throw the league into a three-way tie 
for first place. 

Other games on the Tiger schedule 
for the next two weeks are February 
10, St. John's, home; February 17, 
Chanute, home; February 20, Indep- 
endence, home. The Johnnies surprised 
the Arks in the season opener, but 
both the others have been victims of 
the Bengals during the season. 

Tigers dominated the play in the over- 
time period and pulled through with 
a victory. 

At Dodgo City, the Tirers led by 
12 points with only eight minutes 
remaining in the game, and it seemed 
that it was only a matter of time be- 
fore Ark City would add another vic- 
tim to its growing list. They fell 
apart at that point, throwing bad 
passes, taking poor shots, and kick- 
ing th ball awE.y time after time, 
and what looked li v e a sure victory 
tui-ed into a 68-67 upset defeat. 

Ray Potter was high scorer for the 
Tigers with 25 and 24 points in both 
g,>mes. Burns turned in 19 points and 
Kin<r 9 against the Broncs. 

After losing a 14-point lead, the Ti- 
gers came back in the final quarter 
to defeat Chanute J. C, 76-73, in a 
nen-ccnference game played at Chan- 
ute on February .' r> >. 

T n winning their thirteenth game in 
seventeen starts, Ark City had little 
trouble in the first half, as they rolled 
in the second period the 'tigers led 
by 14 points. 

Early in the final period, Chanuto 
took a 55-54 lead, but Jack King hit 
a s>t shot, and the Timers went out 
in front 56-55, a le:d they never re- 
linquished. Lafayette Norwood and 
Ray Potter led the scoring with 21 
and 17 points, respectively.

No Record 
Just to keep the .records straight, 
Ray Potter's 41 points against E! 
Dorado does not constitute a new 
schcol record. Potter does hold the 
school mark, having scored 43 points 
against Parsons last year. 

An air force team seeking candi-

The junior college chorus class, di- 
rected by C. L. Hinchee, will soon be- 
gin practicing for their annual tour 
to the high schools in near-by cities. 

Along with the chorus there will be 
instrumental solos and various read- 
ings by the students. 

The group last year traveled to 
Dexter, Cedar Vale, Oxford, Udall, At- 
lanta, Burden, South Haven, Cam- 
bridge, Chilocco and Caldwell. 

Object of the tour is to promote the 
college and to interest prospective stu-

Geologists Begin 
Study of Kansas 
Rocks and Hills 

The physical and historical make- 
up of the earth is being studied in the 
geology class which is being offered 
for the first time to the student body. 
Once before it was a tutoring class 
because there were not enough inter- 
ested in this course. 

There are eight students enrolled, 
including, Don Bowman, Clarence Mil- 
bourn, Ted Foote, "Cub" Bair, Jim 
Roberts, Jerry David, Dick Eustice 
and Kenneth Greenhagen. 

Geology is the study of earth and 
it's physical and historical make-up 
and is often called the study of the 
rocks, minerals, people, and erosion. 

The class will study the evidence 
that Kansas was once under sea level. 

The students that are taking this 
class are interested in forestry or eng- 
ineering degrees and they need the 
course for advanced standing at four 
year colleges. 

The class is taught by D. C. Stark 
during the sixth hour and is a four 
hour course which meets on Monday, 
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Ben Baker, '52 ACJC Grad, 
Tells of Korean Army Life 

"Just to be Home" seems to be the 
ideal of most of the boys in uniform, 
and fairly sums up the feelings of 
Ben Baker, graduate of Juco in 1952. 

A. F. Buffo, printing instructor, re- 
cently received a letter from Ben in- 
forming him that Ben was stationed 
in Korea, working as a mechanic be- 
hind the lines. 

Baker stated that the weather was 
cold and changeable, but the army 
had issued clothing that was warm 
and comfortable. Uncle Sam has re- 
quested that Ben reside in Korea for 
12 to 14 months. 

Baker, one of the old "printing- mon- 
kies for Tiger Tales, receives his mail

The clubroom committee has ar- 
ranged for the record player to be

keep this music for enjoyment they 
must keep noise down and to take care 
of the records. 

Hearts and Flowers' Theme 
Of Valentine Tea 

"Hearts and flowers" was the theme 
that the girls in the foods class car- 
ried out for their Valentine Tea last 

The table was centered with a white 
heart-shaped cake with small pink 
daisies in the center of it. Yellow and 
purple flowers were placed around the 
cake. A red heart made of ice floated 
in the bowl of pink punch. 

The girls fixing this colorful tea 
tea were Peggy Trent, Sue Woodard, 
Sara Gilbert, Gertrude E s t e p, and 
Joanna Buzzi. 

Those attending the tea besides the 
college faculty were the staff from 
the high school office, the staff from 
Dr. Vineyard's office, and the junior 
high school foods teachers. 

They were served cup cakes and

recreation center. At least Mr. Stark's 
book was found there.

Delighted Over New Toys 

Have you ever seen a little boy 
press his nose against a bakery win- 
dow and eye a fluffy pink cake or 
come dofnstairs on Christmas morn- 
ing with the presents piled high? 

If you happened to be in the office 
or reading room when one of Miss 
Henrietta Courtright's "slide rule 
boys" purchased his pride and joy 
you would have seen the same joyful 
delinght spring into the eyes and faces 
of these college lads. 

Miss Courtright explained to those 
boys planning to take slide rule that 
they should suggest to Santa that a 20 
dollar bill in the toe of their stocking 
would be greatly appreciated. 

Taking the advive, C. W. Roe re- 
turned to school with some Texas 
money and entrusted it to Miss Court- 
right. When the announcement ap- 
peared about the arrival of the inst- 
ruments and the meeting of the class, 
C. W. arrived on time with his slide 
rule, paid in full. (Thanks to Miss 

The attitudes of the 18 boys were 
varied. Several were excited about 
purchasing "those tools" while others 
seemed very sophisticated — until ti'.ey 
stepped outside the office and thought 
no one was looking. Then they care- 
fully opened the smooth leather cases 
and examined the slide rules from end 
to end, pushing here, sliding- it back 

Slide rule is a subject which re- 
quires manipulative skill, which in- 
cludes speed in setting the slide. It 
also requires mental ability and a 
knowledge of logarithms from college

pocket when I apply for a job," com- 
mented Jerry David, patting his slide 
rule. "Then they'll think I'm smart." 

The class meets on Tuesdays and 
Thursdays at 12. Those boys enrolled 
in the class include Gary Baker, Lynn

John Cheuvront, Richard Circle, Joe

J. C. Louderback, Jim Reed, C. W.

Dance Is Written 
By Don Lewis 

Tiger Tales is presenting a letter 
received from Don Lewis, graduate 
of 1950. When the staff wrote before 
Christmas, P. M. Johnson promised to 
dedicate a dance with the prettiest girl 
at the party to Lewis. 

This is the reply to that letter: 
"Hi, P. M., 

I'm really glad to receive the Tiger 
Tales and even more so to get the 
notes you write. 

That Christmas dance must have 
been a number one 'doin's'. 

Tell your wife that I said 'Thanks' 
for that dance. I really enjoyed it. I 
guess you'll have to dance another 
one for me at the Tigerama, for I 
don't believe I can get home that soon. 
I won't leave here until the last part 
of April and it shall take another 
month for me to reach dear ole A. C. 

I've heard rumors that this year's 
Juco team is a hot one. From what I 
can read from the 'Tales' it would 
seem they were. Of course this news 
sheet could be prejudiced. 

I really don't believe those boys 
should quit at the semester. They 
should stay in school as long as pos- 
sible. If and when they quit they are 
just much closer to this wonderful 
land over here. 

In case they don't know — that isn't 
good! Only about fifteen per cent of 
the front-line troops over here walk 
out without a scratch. A lot of them 
are hit two and three times and they 
are sent back as soon as they heal. 

I'm back on the line again. It is 
not quite as rough as last Fall but I 
still can't say I like it. The Chinese 
do not bother us much but are con- 
tent to sit on their side and wait for 
one of our patrols to walk into them. 
They throw a few rounds once in a 

A company over here stays on line 
about a month at a time and then 
pull back to the rear to train for 
about three weeks before being sent 
up again. 

Well, I suppose you have graded 
all the papers on semester exams by 
now? How are your percentages run- 
ning now? Still have a few yokels, 
I guess ?

Tigers Dump 
Grizzlies To 
Knot Title Race 

The Juco Tigers turned the Western 
division into a two-way tie last Friday 
evening by outfighting and outclassing 
the El Dorado Grizzles 68-58 before 
an overflow crowd at El Dorado. The 
crucial victory put Ark City on top 
of the ladder along with El Dorado. 
Each team now has a 7-2 league re- 
cord. Dodge City also moved into con- 
tention, being only one-half game off 
the pace with a 6-2 record. 

Several hundred people from Ark- 
ansas City followed the team to El 
Dorado to witness the game. It was 
one of the largest crowds in the 
school's history to support a Tiger 
team on the road. 

The sensational shooting and team 
play of Ray Potter was easily the 
main factor in the Bengals' victory. 
The Tiger center flipped in 13 field 
goals and 15 foul shots for a grand 
total of 41 points. He also handed off 
some beautiful passes to account for 
for other Tiger noints. Potter was all 
over the floor, intercepting passes and 
grabbing rebounds off the back boards. 

Every Ark City player in action 
played a superb game, including 
Cecil Hawkins, Jerry David, Jim Reed, 
Lynn Burns, Jackie King, and La- 
fayette Norwood, along with Potter. 
Ark City's overall season record is 
now 16 wins and 4 losses. 
Mike Girrens of El Dorado started 
the evening's activity with two quick 
baskets and the Grizzlies led 4-0. Ark 
City moved into the scoring column'on 
a foul by Potter and a field goal by 
King. Potter then drove in for a lay- 
up and was fouled on the play. Hi? 
shot was good and the Bengals led 

El Dorado led 14-13 at the end cf 
the quarter. In the second stanza Pot- 
ter began to hit the basket from all di- 
rection to make 19 points, giving the 
Tigers a 34-24 half-time advantage. 
In the second half the Grizzlies came 
back strong, and with Wilson scoring 
from the pivot position, El Dorado 
came within three points of knotting 
the game. Each time El Dorado came 
within one basket of tying the game, 
Ray Potter scored for Ark City to 
widen the gap. 

In the B team game, Ark City lost 
their second contest of the year, 27- 
25 in an abbreviated struggle. Elks 
of El Dorado was high man with 11 
poii ts, while J. C. Louderback led the 
Tiger scoring with 8 points. 

Everybody Gets Into 
Act as Bengals 
Swamp Black Panthers 

The Tigers did it again, steam- 
rolling over a good Chanute basket- 
ball team 88 to 59 on the home court 
Tuesday to chalk up their 17th v.ctory 
of the year in 21 games. Chanute 
made a game of it for the first half, 
but finally fell under, as Ark City's 
fast break style basketball was just 
too much for the. Black Panthers. 

Ark City led at the quartei s 25-16, 
43-37, 63-45, and 88-59. Lafayette 
Norwood and Ray Potter led the Ben- 
gal offense with 23 and 19 points res- 
pectively. It was the second time this 
season that the Tigers defeated Cha- 
nute, beating them 76-73 only two 
weeks ago. Coach Kahler cleaned the 
Tigers bench as the advantage 
widened in the later stages of the 
game, but the score continued to 

The Tiger B's lost their third out- 
ing in sixteen games 52-53, to the 
Kanotex five. 

Bengals Meet 

Tigers Beat Pratt 
78-52 for 6th Win 

In League Play 

Returning to their home court after 
four games on the road, the Tigers 
easily whipped the Pratt Beavers 78- 
52, before a near-capacity crowd on 
Feb. 6. In winning their sixth confer- 
ence game in eight stai'ts, the Bengals 
remained one game behind El Dorado 
in the league standings. 

The shooting of Ray Potter was the 
main factor, as Ark City romped to a 
46-21 half-time advantage. Potter 
made good on 11 shots in 13 attempts, 
and ended up his evening's work with 
31 points. 

In the preliminary game Reece Bo- 
hannon led the Tiger B team to a 77- 
69 victory over Tisdale in a high scor- 
ing affair. Bohaunon dumped in 27 
points and was followed by Frank 
Scarth's 20, and Don Hunt's 17. The 
Tiger B's now possess a 12 and 1

Dragons in Order 

The Tigers meet Independence Pir- 
ates tomorrow night at the school 
auditorium in the first of three games 
coming up to end their regular sea- 
son schedule. This game will be the 
final home game of the year, except 
for division playoffs which now seem 
likely to arrive. 

On February 24 the Bengals travel 
to Coffeyville and then go to Hutch- 
inson on Feb. 27 for an all-important 
conference game. Ark City must de- 
feat the Dragons to keep in the run- 
ning for the Western Division title. 

In earlier games this year, the 
Tigers defeated Independence 58-57 
in overtime on the loser's floor. Cof- 
feyville and Hutchinson were also 
victims of Ark City, the Ravens los- 
ing 73-51 at the school auditorium, 
and Hutchinson being mauled twice, 
73-49 in the Christmas El Dorado 
tournament, and 76-62 at the Bengal 

St. John's Easily 
Trounced By Arks 
In Revenge Game 

In a warm-up tilt prior to the El 
Dorado game the Bengels trimmed St. 
John's of Winfield 84-55 at the aud- 
itorium. The win was a sweet one for 
the Tigers, who lost to the Johnnies 
earlier in the season, 57 to 53. 

The game started slowly with both 
teams missing with regularity. Only 
a strong defense and accuracy at the 
foul line gave the Arks a slight first 
quarter lead. In the second quarter 
the Tigers steadily pulled away from 
their rivals, and led 33-19 at half- 

Opening the third quarter with a 
furry of quick baskets the Tigers co .n- 
pletely outclassed their rivals. Their 
offense picked up, and with Jim Reed 
leading the way, Ark City scored 51 
points in the second half. Reed played 
a magnificient game in the fourth 
quarter, scoring 16 points, and team- 
ing with Cecil Hawkins to control 
both back-boards. Ray Potter was 
high scorer for the Bengals with 17 
points. He was followed by Lafayette 
Norwood and Reed with 16 each.

Recreation Room Board of Education 
Receives Full Plans Landscaping 

Facial Treatment 

Anyone wandering through the 
clubrooms these days could hardly 
help but notice the changes, for the 
better, which have been taking place. 

If the student wishes to relax, the 
new overstuffed furniture would sat- 
isfy his wants immediately. It includes 
two second hand divans and one chair 
which the recreation committee pur- 
chased from Owen's Furniture Store. 

When he has once again gathered 
his strength the new ping-pong table 
built by the Wood's Lumber Co., prob- 
ably catches his eye and an ensuing 
game will follow. In addition the old 
ping-pong table has had its top turned 
and is once again capable of handling 
a fast game of table tennis. 

The clubroom floor and walls receiv- 
ed some juco elbow grease Monday 
night when a "brick dance," arranged 
by the Student Council committee of 
Lawrence Stover, Phyllis Hill, and 
Margaret Dempsey, gathered the stu- 
dents for an evening of clean-up and 
fun. Rough walls were smoothed and 
given a cement wash. The old ping- 
ping-pong tables were also painted. 
The college finance committee furn- 
ished the refreshments. 

Further improvements for the club- 
rooms are planned which include 
painting of the walls with some pastel 
shade, covering the rloor with asphalt 
tile, and other additions of furniture. 

The Student Council arrived at sev- 
eral other conclusions at its meeting 
on February 18. Included was a plan 
for hosts and hostesses for the club- 
rooms. These persons will work one 
hour a day for the time of one week, 
will make change for students, and see 
that things remain in order. The re- 
creation committee will post a weekly 
schedule of those persons who will 
take part in this activity. 

The junior college building will be 
the scene of the Tigei'ama again this 
spring. This building will be used 
somewhat on the same basis as it was 
for the Christmas dance. 

Peggy Trent was nominated and 
elected by the Council to the post of 
finance chairman, for 1953-54. 

Spring will soon be here, and evid- 
ence of this will soon be seen around 
the building. 

Dr. J. J. Vineyard announced this 
week that men will soon start plant- 
ing shubbry and grass around the 
building and in the Mower boxes. 

The school board has accepted a 
plan submitted by G. E. Spangler and 
the agriculture department will take 
care of the planting of grass. 

Mr. Spangler has planned a color- 
ful design for the boxes and around 
the edge of the builduig. There will 
be a variety of plants and shubbery. 

The two groups will start within 
the next two or three weeks to plant 
so they can hit the spring rains. 

Dr. Vineyard also said that plans 
will be made soon for a driveway be- 
tween the two buildings. 

Sophomore Pictures 
Soon To Be Taken 
For Tiger Rag 

Sophomores are to have their an- 
nual pictures taken as soon as a num- 
ber of caps and gowns arrive, Allen 
Maag yearbook sponsor, announced 
this week. Pictures that have already 
been taken are being mounted to be 
sent to the engravers. "The pictures 
will be mounted and ready to send to 
the engravers in three or four weeks," 
Maag said. 

Pictures of the freshman, student 
council, faculty, Tigei Action Club, 
Future Teachers of America, football 
team, basketball team, class officers, 
team captains, and Arkalalah and 
Athletic queens, all have been, taken. 

The only pictures left to be taken 
are the sophomores, band, t ennis

Plans for a mammoth celebration

student mass meeting Thursday morn- 
ing. Players asked that the celebration 
be delayed until the close of the sea- 
son, so that they might participate.

decided in a best of three games to 
be played at Chanute juco gym Fri- 
day, Saturday, and if necssary, Mon-

Tigers Are Heard 

An indication of the feelings of the 
townspeople who are behind the efforts 
of the Juco Tigers was expressed in 
the editorial of the Traveler, March 
2. Since it expresses the feelings of 
the college students toward the team, 
too, we reprint it here: 

"That long and blistering athletic 
drought around here seems to have 
been broken — thanks to Coach Dan 
Kahler and his band of junior college 
basketball players. They iced a share 
of the conference championship. (Iced 
is a word used by sports writers to 
denote ownership.) 

"A play off is in the offing to 
determine who will get the blue rib- 
bon, but the standings at the end of 
a season's regular play put Arkansas 
City at the top; although that champ- 
ionship is shared. 

"Life on the athletic front has been 
rather drab. At times the local fans 
were irate. However, there has never 
been anything wrong that couldn't be 
cared by getting material and good 
coaching. In fact, basketball these 
days has taken a funny turn. Instead 
of watching the win column fans keep 
an eye on statistics. They want to 
know who made the most buckets. 
( Buckets is a word used by sports 
writers and means goals). 

People know more about a player's 
record than they do about the team. 
However, there are always a few from 
the old school who will settle only 
for victory — a team victory that is. 
So the fans looked at Dan Kahler and 
he looked back at them. He figured 
that if he could have the gasoline he 
would drive the basketball vehicle for 
all it was worth. Dan got the gaso- 
ine he wanted in the form of some 
right smart cage experts. (Cage is 
a" word often used by sports writers 
and refers to basketball.) 

"So the Juco Tigers close the sea- 
son at the top of the list. That's a 
good place to be. Congratulations to 
Dan Kahler and the regulars and 
subs who took the school to. glory." 


Kenny Hollowell has had to go 
have his feathers plucked. K°nny, a 
Juco freshman, is in the Veterans 
Hospital in Wichita having some shell 
fragments removed from his left arm 
which he received while serving on 
the front in Korea. 


Have you lost a shoe? See Freddy 
Lathers, he seems to always have 
someone's shoe hiding somewhere. 

The clubrooms look more like home 
now, since the new furniture was pur- 
chased. Let's try real hard to keep 
this new equipment as nice as pos- 

town this week, enroute to his new 
Air Force assignment at Topeka. 


Although it has not definitely been 
decided upon, school heads are think- 
ing very seriously about buying a' 
projector for classroom use. Sales- 
men have been visiting the school for 
the past month, demonstrating var- 
ious models of 16-millimeter projec- 
tors. College instructors have bor- 
rowed high school projectors to date 
whenever movies were used. 


A new ping pong table arrived Wed- 
nesday and the old ones have been 
fixed. New paddles have been pur- 


For the past week or so people 
have been going around carrying 
measuring tape's, hammers and nails. 
They have been measuring the base- 
ment floor and nailing the ping pong- 
tables together again. Let's keep the 
equipment in good shape so these 
things can last for awhile,

A. E. Maag announced last week 
that a forensics team may soon be 
working for intercollegiate competi- 

Forensics includes a variety of dif- 
ferent things. Included are dramatic 
and humorous readings, interprets e 
readings, Bible readings, poetiw, after- 
dinner speeches, extemp speeches, 
impromptu speechs and radio speech- 
es. Also there will be orations, original 
and standard, book reviews, story- 
telling and a one-act play. 

Some of the forensic entrants may 
go on the spring tours planned for 
college promotion, Maag said. 

Dust, Water, waterproof cement, 
laugther, and friendly conversation 
(iiled the atmosphere in the under- 
ground story of the junior college last 
Tuesday evening. The night of the 
"brick dance" had arrived and guys 
and gals streamed in all set to 
"dance" on the walls. 

After each wall had been smoothed 
and the rubble cleared away, a mad 
scramble was made for the brushes 
used to apply the waterproof cement. 
First the pillers were bathed with the 
hose by Richard Lambring. This was 
followed by the step ladder procession, 
topped by several sturdy juco gentle- 
men who plastered the tops of the 
pillars (and the ladies' heads) while 
the gals worked below. 

While the walls were being washed, 
Don Heflin and Don Hunt operated on 
the old ping-pong table and when it 
was placed on its feet again, Barbara 
Upson, Helen Gochis, and Gerry Bart- 
lett gave it a new jacket of green 

The room was filled with lightening 
flashes as Peggy Trent and her 
camera caught several . people -una- 


Meanwhile Margaret Dempsey and 
her kitchen crew were busy upstairs 
preparing hot chili hotciogs for the 
gang to munch on. 

A general clean-up ended the partv 
and everyone retreated home to re- 
move the cement wash that somehow 
got on them instead of the walls 

Bright and early Wednesday morn- 
ing, upon entering the bastinent, an 
unaforetold catastrophe of the prev- 
ious evening was discovered. The 
water-proof cement had not been 
mixed properly, and the effect of the 
mixture was acclaimed a failure which 
would not be satisfactory as a base 
coa„ for paint 

At 1.0:45 a. m., fully equipped with 
gunny sacks and brooms, P. M. John- 
sen s economics class retired to the 
l.-.ise.jient and futifully > iv, pel and 
rubbed the "white wash." 

Plans now include painting the 
basement with a power sprayer. Jerry 
David will be the operator and will 
paint the. interior with a base coat 
and then apply light green oil paint 
to the walls and yellow to. the ceiling.

1953 "Athletic 
Sweetheart" Is 
Phyllis Gilmore 

Phyllis Gilmore, sophomcre cheer- 
leader, received the title of "Athletic 
Sweetheart of 1953" at ceremonies 
held at the half-time of the Ark City- 
Independence game Friday night. 

The three top candidates, Gerry 
Bartlett, Phyllis, and Barbara Upson 
were selected by the popular vote of 
the students from a group of five 
nominated by athletic squad members. 

The impressive ceremony began 
when the three girls were escorted to 
the center of the floor by Ernie Hart- 
man, Ted Purvis, and Dick Reinking, 
members of the 1952 Tiger grid squad. 
They approached from the south and 
while two members of the basketball 
team and two Tiger Action Club mem- 
bers came from the north. 

Jerry David, Tiger sophomore 
eager, placed the crown on Phyllis 
and bestowed the congratulatory kiss. 
Jim Reed presented the bouquet of 
white carnations to the queen. Jerry 
then put on her wrist an engraved 
bracelet, like the flowers, a gift of 
the college student body. As the queen 
was escorted to her throne the stu- 
dents, lead by other cheerleaders, 
yelled the traditional yell, "Yea 
Queen Phyllis." 

Joanna Buzzi carried the bonquet 
for the ceremony and Donna Hill 
carried the gold crown and jewelery. 

Corsages were presented to Barbara 
and Gerry, attendants to the queen. 

Hawkins Tried by School for 
Assault on School Spirit 

Excitment ran high on February 
20 when the case of "ACJC vs. Cecil 
B. Hawkins, Jr." came to court. 

Judge Kelsey Day presided with 
Gerry Bartlett, Barbara Upson, and 
Phyllis Gilmore acting as jurors, in 
a school assembly program. Daniel 
Livingston served as "attorney for 
the school" and charged the defend- 
ent with misconduct, malice intent, 
and attempted kidnapping of the 
"Spirit of the School". 

Attorney for the defense, Ted Pur- 
vis, pleaded the case and succeeded 
in getting permission from Judge Day 
to reinrct the scene of February 13, 
ty see if the Spirit was really harmed. 

Cecil B. Hawkins, Jr., then lead the 
courtroom in an attempt to raise the 
Spirit by yelling "Beat 'em Tigers 
Best 'enr". 

Slowly, slowly the Spirit begin to 

FTA Selects Informative 
Program as Chapter Project 

To inform Arkansas City and the 
surrounding communities of the ele- 
mentary education department of the 
Arkansas City Junior College is to 
be the project of the C. E. St. John 
Chapter of FTA. 

A special committe of Duane An- 
stine, Evelyn Parker, and Rose Sher- 
wood was appointed to lay the ground- 

A round-table discussion of apply- 
ing for a teaching position was held 
with Mrs. Feme Runk, principal at 
Washington School, as special leader. 

Barbara Upson presented a short 
essay on "Butterflies in Your Stom- 
ach". The chapter's seal of good stand- 
ing as placed on the charter. 

Miss Mary Margaret Williams, co- 
sponsor, was hostess to the eight 
members and Mrs. Runk. 

Distributive Ed. 
Representatives Win 
3 State Contests 

Three first places in state contests 
was the unusual record of three stu- 
dents of Carl Holman's distributive 
education and trade and industry 
classes, who with Mr. Holman, went 
to the Fifth Annual Convention of 
the Business Education Clubs of Kan- 
sas, held in Emporia, February 23-24. 
They were Marietta Boswell, Dan Liv- 
ingston, and Galen McLaughlin. 

The group took an exhibit up with 
them which took first place in the 
state contest. They based the exhibit 
around the theme "Business and Ed- 
ucation Go Hand In Hand''. Walter 
Elder, state supervisor of business 
education, said "the exhibit was 
the best ever brought up." 

'' he three entered the window jud- 
ging contest and again took first place. 
Dun also entered in the "Nuts and 
Bolts" contest and too;* first in the 
tesi cl manipulative sk'Mi. 

Hie gjoup had a- very full si-hedaie 
fi'L'iii tho time they arrive'! until they 
departed. On Monday the business ses- 
sions and the contest kept the dele- 
gates busy. That night they attended 
a banquet and after that a dance in 
the Student Union building. On Tues- 
day morning the group returned to 
business sessions and the election of 
officers for 1954. 

Ihe theme of the convention was 
"Today's Youth is Tomorrow's Bus- 

rise. At full height it quietly spoke, 
"We'll win tonight!" (And we did) 

Judge Day's decision: - 
"Case dismissed — Hawkins innocent." 

Assembly Programs 
To Be "Livened" By 
Class Competition 

Musicals, dramas, instrumental en- 
sembles, and comedies are the make- 
ups of several of the coming as- 
semblies for the students of ACJC. 

According to the program commit- 
tee, the prize assemblies, because of 
the competition involved, will be be- 
tween the freshmen and the sophomore 
classes. These programs may consist 
of various types of entertainment 
which can pass the censorship of the 

Dates for these two assemblies have 
not been set, but committees and plans 
for these programs are beginning to 
roll and arrangements for presenta- 
tion will be made as soon as the acts 
are ready. 

On April 15 the juco auditorium 
will ring with melodies and songs 
played by Petric's symphonic brass 
quartet, consisting of two young wo- 
men and two men, playing the trom- 
bone, cornets, and French horn. This 
will be the third assembly of the year 
presented through the University of 
Kansas extension division.

Our Miss Co-Ed for this issue is 
a freshman who goes by the nick- 
name of "Joey." 

Joey's most outstanding character- 
istic is her personality. She now stands 
to the full height of five feet five 
inches tall, weighs 112 pounds, and 
has blue eyes and brown hair. 

January 15, 1934 marks the date 
when Joey was born in Arkansas 
City. Finally struggling through 12 
years of school she was graduated 
from the Arkansas City High School. 

Her ambition is to become a house- 
wife. When asked what she planned 
to do after graduation she answered 
"sleep." To read is what Joey likes 
to do in her spare time. Of course 
her ideal boy is Ray Potter, but he 
is also her pet peeve. 

Her favorites: sport, basketball; 
school subject, typing; singer, Frankie 
Laine; band, Leon McAuiiffe; pas-

Arks in Play-off 
Game Tonight 
At Independence 

All the chips will be on the table 
tonight, when the Tigers meet the 
Dodge City Conqs for the Western 
Division Championship at Independ- 
ence. Tip-off for tonight's game is 
scheduled for 8:15 p. m. 

El Dorado and Dodge played last 
night, with the winner earning the 
right to play Ark City tonight. All 
three teams ended the regular league 
season with 8 wins and 2 loses. 

Its been a long bitter struggle for 
the division championship, as all three 
teams battled gamely right down to 
the wire. El Dorado had the best shot 
at the title, being two games in the 
lead, but lost to Dodge City 59-54 at 
Dodge and then to Ark City 68-58 on 
their own floor. Had the Tigers lost 
to El Dorado, the race would have 
been over. 

The Arks go into tonight's contest 
with a nine game winning streak and 
a season's record of 20-4. They have 
displayed courage and determination 
when the going was rough, and have 
managed to win the close ones. 

The winner of this evening's game 
will meet Chanute in a best of three 
for the State Championship. All three 
games will be played at Chanute. The 
Panthers won the Eastern Division 
Championship by upsetting Fort Scott. 

The Tigers will undergo heavy 
practice sessions all next week in 
preparation for the regional tourna- 
ment to be held at Dodge City on 
March 12, 13, and 14. 

The top two teams from this tourn- 
ament will represent the state of 
Kansas in the national at Hutchinson 
stalling March 24. Eight teams will 
compete in the regionals. They will 
be the top three clubs from each div- 
ision and two other teams to be in- 

Representing the Western division 
in all probability will be El Dorado, 
Dodge City, Arkansas City, and Gar- 
den City, while Chanute, Fort Scott, 
Coffeyville, and Independence will re- 
present the Eastern division. 

Coach Dan Kahler has announced 
that ten players will make the trip 
to the tourney at Dodge City. They 
are Ray Potter, Jerry David, Linwood 
Burns, Jackie King, Lafayette Nor- 
wood, Cecil Hawkins, Jim Reed, Reece 
Bohannon, J. C. Louderback, and Cy

Tigers End Regular 
Home Season with 
Win over Pirates 

Ark City's Tigers treated their 
loyal home fans to a rousing 72-44 
victory over Independence in their fi- 
nal home game of the 1952-53 basket- 
ball season, February 20. In romping 
to their 18th decision in 22 games, 
the Bengals displayed the brand of 
basketball that has made them a top 
team of the state. 

Independence tried to slow the game 
up to a walk in an effort to halt Ark 
City's fast break, and actually suc- 
ceeded in the first quarter, holding 
the score to 14-9 in favor of the Ti- 
gers, but early in the second stanza 
it was evident that the Pirates did 
not have the ability to keep matters 
that way. In the final seconds of the 
first-half, Linwood Burns shot a one- 
hander from nearly 50 feet and Ark 
City led 29-14. 

The Orange and Black continued 
the onslaught in the third quarter, 
scoring almost at will. They broke 
through Independence zone defense 
like a heavy tank going through a 
paper wall. Four Tiger sophomores 
played their last regular season game 
here for Ark City. They were Jackie 
King, Jerry David, Cecil Hawkins, and 
Ray Potter. 

Miss Phyllis Gilmore was crowned 
JUCO Athletic Queen during cere- 
monies at half-time. The attractive 
brunette was crowned by Bengal for- 
ward Jerry David. Taking part in the 
half-time activities were Jim Reed, 
Joann Buzzi and Donna Hill. Gerry 
Bartlett and Barbara Upson were 
named attendants to the queen. 

In the B game, the Tigers won over 
Cambridge 75-52 to capture their 13th 
win in 16 games, Reece Bohannon led 
the scoring with 19 points, and was 
followed by Joe Clark with 15, and 
Don Hunt with 14. 

Tigers Grab 
Share of 
Western Title 

Fighting back with a fourth quarter 
rally, the Tigers came from behind 
to edge an inspired Hutchinson team, 
67-63, to tie El Dorado and Dodge 
City for the Western Division Champ- 
ionship. Playing at the new million 
dollar sports arena in Hutchinson, the 
Bengals trailed throughout most of 
the contest. 

Once again it was Ark City's re- 
serve power that came through to 
help salvage the cruieal victory. Go- 
ing into the final quarter the Blue 
Dragons led 49-44, and seemed well on 
the way to etablish an upset, but Ark 
City never gave up. The Tigers kept 
plugging away, until finally Lafayette 
Norwood, with only 29 seconds left, 
tossed in a sensational jumping one 
hander sending the Bengals into the 
lead. Jim Reed followed with two free 
throws, and that was the four point 
margin of victory. 

With most of the Tiger starters out 
of the game on personal fouls, Coach 
Dan Kahler had to rely on his second 
stringers to pull the game out of the 
fire. Jim Reed, Cecil Hawkins and 
Reece Bohannon all turned in stellar 
performances in the final quarter. 
Lafayette Norwood was high scorer 
of the evening, dumping in 15 points. 

A fourth-quarter rally, culminated 
by Ray Potter's two free throws, gave 
the Tigers and exciting 63-61 decision 
over a stubborn Coffeyville team on 
the loser's floor, February 24. 

In extending their current victory 
string to eight straight games, the 
Tigers had to fight up-hill all the way. 
During the first half the Red Ravens 
held leads at 10-2, 13-4, 34-20, and 
at the end of the half 40-33. 

Coffeyville fans saw an entirely 
different game in the second half. 
Ark City buckled down on defense 
and had more determination to win. 
Linwood Burns and Jerry David were 
particulary good in grabbing rebounds 
off the boards. 

Pay Potter took high scoring honors 
with 26 points, and was followed by 
Jackie King with 12. 

It was the second time this year 
the Bengals defeated Coffeyville, and 
it marked their 19th win of the sea- 

Coach Dan Kahler used nine boys 
in the tilt. Other than those already 
mentioned they were Lafayette Nor- 
wood, Jim Reed, Cecil Hawkins, J. C. 
Louderback, and Seymour Seitchick.

College Players 
To Present 
Annual Drama 

Rehearsals of the three-act comedy 
college play, "Rain on the Roof", are 
well under way, Mrs. Nevva Sartin, 
director, announced today. The play 
is scheduled for April 9-10. 

" 'Rain on the Roof " is a comedy of 
well-balanced parts, Mrs. Sartin said 
today. "It is not with the idea of star- 
ring one player above his supporting- 
cast. All of the parts are leading roles. 
Such plays are hard to find, but since 
each player must devote equal time 
and effort to the undertaking, why 
should the opportunities not be 
equal ?" 

Students participating in this pro- 
duction are Gene Scroggins, Mildred 
Reinking, Phyllis Hill, Lawrence 
Anglemeyer, Alan Austin, Harry Dia- 
mond, and Sara Gilbert. 

Promotion and ticket sales are being 
handled by Wallace Stovall, Don Bow- 
man, and Dick Eustice. Stage engin- 
eers are Gene Trenary and Melvin 

"The play has a laugh in every line. 
It is a favorite among college groups 
because it presents to the player a 
challenge in character interpretation," 
the director said. 

Regional Champs Honored 

A beautifully decorated cake and 
gallons of fruit punch, the gifts of 
Bruce's Hot Shop and Campbell's 
Market, provided the chief items of 
interest at yesterday's assembly pro- 
gram honoring the new Region VI 
basketball champions. 

Tigers Play Hesston Tonight 
The Tigers will play the Hesston 
King Motors basket all club tonight 
at 8:30 at the school auditorium in 
an exhibition game for the scholarship 
fund. The Hesston team is composed 
of former college stars from Kansas 
U and Kansas State, and are now 
one cf the top independent teams in 
the state. . , 

Duane Anstine Rules 
As "King Pat" at Party 

Duane Anstine and Phyllis West 
reigned as King Pat and Queen Pat- 
ricia at the St. Patrick's Dance held 
Tuesday evening in the college audi- 

Pretty green shamrocks placed 
around the college heralded the girl- 
ask-boy affair and added a "bit of 
blarney" to the atmosphere. 

Upon arrival at the party, the men 
wei-e presented with tiny green sham- 
rocks, made of pipe cleaners, and 
their names were listed on the regis- 
ter. Barbara Circle crowned Duane 
who, in turn selected Phyllis 
as Queen Patricia and placed the 
crown upon her head. A boutonniere 
and corsage of white carnations with 
green trimming were presented to the 

The program included several vocal 
solos by Gerry Bartlett. 

Committee heads were Barbara 
Circle, decorations; Mildred Reinking, 
program; and Duane Anstine, pub- 
licity. The student council appropiated 
funds for the music. 

Students Are Lost During 
Redecorating of Clubrooms 

Some juco students do not seem 
to know what to do at noon and be- 
tween classes since the clubrooms are 
closed, but patience will be rewarded 
soon, committee members promise. 

Jerry David took on the task two 
weeks ago of painting the walls and 
ceiling, and when he became involved 
in the basketball play-offs, his father, 
Clifford David, took over his job. With 
the assistance of Kenneth Greenhagen 
and the clubroom committee, the job 
was completed last week. 

The ceiling is now yellow and the 
walls have turned green with envy. 
The floor will soon be covered with 
green tile with a yellow feature strip. 
Total expenditure will be about $480. 

"The clubrooms should be ready in 
a week or two," Richard Lambring, 
recreation chairman, said Wednesday. 
"We hope to have partition walls 
later. We want students to help do 
their part in helping keep it up and 
be on the look-out for a pool table." 

Plans for Juco 
Celebration Well 

An all-day celebration honoring the 
Arkansas City Junior College Tigers 
has been planned for March 30, by 
the college student council. A com- 
mittee consisting of Sara Hill, chair- 
man, Donna Winters, Helen Gochis, 
Don Heflin, Richard Lambring, Reece 
Bohannon, Wayne Hayes, and Barbara 
Thomas got the "ball rolling" last 

Uniform for the day will be hobo 
dress, under tentative plans made by 
the committee Tuesday. 

The day will begin with regular 
8 a. m. classes, under present plans. 
A special assembly, to be held at 8:45 
a.m., will honor the team and coaches. 
Helen Gochis and Donna Winters are 
in charge of the program. 

A parade through the business dis- 
trict of town is scheduled at 9:45. No 
completed arrangements have been

Meet MlU Ca-Cd 

On February 6, 1953 in Arkansas 
City, our Miss Co-Ed was born. Hav- 
ing grown up to the height of five 
feet eight inches, and the weight of 
132 pounds, and developed brown hair 
and eyes, she now has the ambition 
to be an elementary school teacher. 

Since Barbara is a sophomore she 
plans to teach in an elementary school 
after she graduates. 

Her ideal boy is five feet ten inches 
tall, dark hair, blue eyes and is a 
farmer. Barbara herself is known 
throughout the state for her achieve- 
ments in 4-H Club work. 

Since Barbara is the editor of the 
Tiger Tales she lists the Tiger Tales 
staff as her pet peeve, (wonder why?) 

Among her favorites are fried chic- 
ken and banana pie, "Make Believe", 
Jimmy Stewart, Debra Padget, roses, 
basketball, singers Jo Stafford and 
Gordon McRae, and Sammy Kaye's 

She likes to square dance, hike, read, 
and sleep in her spare time. She likes 
to do needle embroidery work as a 
hobby. Also she likes to practice 
teaching at Roosevelt. 

Have you guessed? That's right 
she is Barbara Thomas. 

Meet Mi. Zd 

In 1928 at Threesands, Okla., Jack 
King was born. Jay, as he is nick- 
named, has now grown to the height 
of 5 feet, 7 inches, weighs 145 pounds, 
has dark brown hair and blue eyes. 

Jay is a sophomore and was grad- 
uated from the Winfield High School; 
and attended Southwestern College 
last year. He plans to coach, teach 
and raise a family after he graduates. 
His ambition is to coach and be a tea-

Juco Business Training 

A rapidly developing phase of the 
junior college business education is 
the training in the use of machines 
along with two new major additions 
to the department. To this develop- 
ment two local banks have made im- 
portant contributions. 

A recent major addition to the de- 
partment was a bookkeeping post- 
ing machine, which was donated to 
the school by the Home National 

"This is in on way a piece of ob- 
solete equipment," says Dale Hanson, 
business instructor. "The bank 
changed its bookkeeping procedure 
and is no longer in need of this part- 
icular machine. With this machine it 
is possible to teach the precedures of 
machine bookkeeping, thus giving 
Ark City students practical experience 
in accounts receivable bookkeeping." 

Another major addition was the 
purchase of a duplex comptometer. 
This electric full-capacity machine 
makes it possible to offer juco stu- 
dents comptometer work which makes 
it unnecessary for them to leave Ark 
City to get experience in this type 
of machine. 

Union State Gives Two 

A used full keyboard adding 
machine and an old model bank-post- 
ing machine were also donated to the 
junior college by the Union State 

Fourteen new and used machines 
are in use in the business department, 
including two comptometer's, two 
bookkeeping posting machines, one 
ediphone voice transcriber, one direct 
process duplicator and one mimeo- 
graph. Also there is a mimoscope that 
is used for duplicating work. Addi- 
tional duplicating equipment includes 
lettering aids and various types of 
styli for detailed work. 

To Offer Machine Courses 

At present 17 students are enrolled 
in the office machines course. The 

and gravy, "Don't Let the Stars Get 
in Your Eyes", John Wayne, June 
Allyson, history, rose, baseball, Rose- 
mary Clooney, Bing Crosby, Ray An- 
thony's band. He likes to be with his 
family in his spare time. 

Jay likes historical movies and as 
a hobby he likes to work. He has no 
pet peeve and likes to relax in his 
spare time. 

"My ideal girl", he replies, "is my 
wife." But to a flock of Ark City bas- 
ketball fans, Jack King is an "ideal 
boy." One of Kahler's "mighty mites", 
he's a real sparkplug, on or off the 

course is set up to handle 14 students 
at one time with the present equip- 
ment. Students are rotated on each 
machine for a six day period, thus 
gaining an acquaintanceship and some 
skill on each machine. It is planned 
that next year credit will be offered 
on the following individual machines 
as separate courses: comptometer, 
rotary calculator, ediphone, and add- 
ing machines. Students will be aole 
to gain vocational proficiency on the 
machines of their choosing. 

It is expected that the expanded 
business department will be a deff- 
nite benefit to the Ark City com- 

Other improvements being contem- 
plated are the addition of two new 
courses in the business curriculum, 
general business and business law. 
These courses are expected to be al- 
ternated with present courses in bus- 
iness English and clerical practice. 
One pair of courses will be offered 
one year and the other the following- 

At the present time it is the policy 
for the senior high school to use the 
machines one semester and the junior 
college the next. 

These machines are also available 
to adult students in night school 

Congratulations are in order to 
the following people who are having 
birthdays this month: Bill Sheldon, 
Mar. 18; Ross Sherwood, Mar. 20; 
Gene Scroggins, Mar. 21; Ray Potter, 
and Bill Austin, Mar. 22; Lawrence 
Stover, Mar. 23; Cecil Hawkins, Mar. 
24; Gary Baker, Mar. 25; Darrell 
Fildes, Mar. 31. 

The radio used for the juco basket- 
ball party for the broadcast of the 
Coffeyville game in the regional tour- 
ney last Wednesday was furnished by 
the Hill Electric Co. Much obliged. 

Did you notice Kenneth Green- 
hagen's eye lashes last week? They 
were a bright yellow for a few days, 
result of his helping spray the yellow 
ceiling downstairs. And som? folks 
thought Jerry David was made up to 
play the savage warrior when he quit 
spraying Monday evening. 

What made the girls in the Juco 
foods class come out of class the other 
day looking like each had just eaten 
a persimmon ? The reason for tins 
could be that Peg-y Trent forgot to 
add water to the lemon juice for the 
sauce on the delicious gingerbread:

Work and Fun Combine at Brick Dance 

Humorous Speaker 
Leaves Them Laughing 

John K. Minnoch, widely-known 
humorist and inspirational speaker 
presented his popular lecturer on 
"Don't Sell Yourself Short!" to the 
students on March 4. 

Widely-known as a laugh master, 
he is able to switch suddenly to the 
serious and provide listeners with the 
kind of logic that has made his inspi- 
rational messages outstanding. 

Mr. Minnoch, in his message to the 
students, gave good advice for all. 
His favorite motto is, "If you're so 
darn smart, why aren't you rich?" he 
told students. 

College Chorus Trips 
Planned for Late April 

With so much going on the early 
part of April the chorus trips will 
begin the latter part of April, Dean 
K. R. Galle has announced. He said 
that some trips may be worked in 
earlier if at all possible. 

C. L. Hinchee has his chorus busy 
at work, practicing for the tirps. 

These trips will be made to the 
near-by cities to promote the college 
and to interest students. 

Students were more or less "busy" 
fixing up the college clubroom when 
these pictures were taken March 2.

Special Assembly Recognizes 
State Champ Basketballers 

A special assembly recognizing the 
victory of the Tigers in the State 
championship play-off was held March 

Dean K. R. Galle called the entire 
squad and both coaches to the stage. 
After they were seated the cheer- 
leaders and pep band led a pep rally. 

Coaches Dan Kahler and "Bunt" 
Speer and Supt. J. J. Vineyard gave 
short speeches praising the squad 
members and the student body for 
their achievements and sportsmanship.

Language Clubs Play 
Important Part In 
Students Social Life 

Three related clubs, organized 
around and of the modern language 
classes are an important part of col- 
lege social life at Ark City juco. 

French, German and Spanish Clubs 
are designed to help the student be- 
come familiar with the various phases 
of the French, German and Spanish 
life, and to give practice in the use 
of the languages. 

French and German Clubs are cur- 
rently operative, but the Spanish has 
been disbanded temporarily because 
of the low enrollment in that field. 
The French and German Clubs of the 
Junior College have been meeting once 
a month at various members homes. 

The officers of this year's clubs are 
Peggy Linch, president of the French 
Club and Alan Austin, president of 
the German Club. 

Both clubs had Christmas parties. 
The German Club and the Spanish stu- 
dents were invited to the "Twelfth- 
Night Dinner" on January 6, given 
by the French Club as an annual 
event. The students take part in sing- 
ing songs and playing games in the 
different languages. 

Miss Ann Hawley is sponsor of the 
clubs. "We may get together this 
spring and plana picnic but it is 
doubtful if another 5 o'clock break- 
fast will be planned for this year," 
Miss Hawley said last week. 




Arks to Hutch 
For National 

The Tigers continued to dominate 
Junior College basketball in the State 
of Kansas, last week winning the Reg- 
ional tournament at Dodge City on 
March 12, 13, and 14. By capturing 
top honors in the regional, Ark City 
has earned the right to represent 
Region 6 in the national tournament. 

The Tigers will now be shooting for 
national honors when they meet Mob- 
erly Junior College, Moberly, Miss- 
ouri, Regional 16 champs, in the open- 
ing round of the national juco meet, 
being held at the new million dollar 
sports arena at Hutchinson. 

Play First Game Wednesday 

The game will start at 3:30 p. m. 
Wednesday, March 25. Sixteen teams 
from coast to coast will participate 
in the double elimination tournament. 

The Moberly Greyhounds are coach- 
ed by Maurice John, and have a sea- 
son's record of 20 wins and 7 losses. 
It is the third straight year that they 
will compete in the nationals, and un- 
der the coaching of John, the fourth 
time in six years. 

The Ark's have already won four 
titles this year, the Christmas Invi- 
tational tourney at El Dorado, the 
Western division, the State, and the 
Regional 6 trophy. 

Coach Dan Kahler's Bengals had a 
rough road at Dodge City in winning 
their three games. In order they 
downed Coffeyville 72-67, Ft. Scott 
78-77, and El Dorado 83-82. They have 
extended their winning streak to 15 
games and now possess a season's re- 
cord of 26 wins and 4 defeats. 

Ray Potter led the Tiger scoring 
for the tourney with 76 points in three 
games for a 25.3 average. 

Ravens Are Tough 

Round one saw the Tigers off their 
usual pace, and as a result they were 
almost eliminated by Coffeyville. The 
Red Ravens helped matters by missing- 
most of their free throws and Ark City 
won 72-67. The Ft. Scott and El Do- 
rado games were just about the same, 
both ending in one point victories for 
the Bengals. In the championship 
game against El Dorado, Ark City had 
to stop a desperate last minute rally 
by the Grizzlies to win 83-82. The Ti- 
gers led most of the way, but never 
by more than a few points. 

Linwood Burns and Ray Potter were 
honored when they were named on 
the all-tournament team. The entire 
Ark City team received gold basket- 
balls for winning first place, and the 
school a giant trophy. 

Tigers Win State Title; 
Defeat Chanute Twice 
After Whipping Dodge City 

History was made last week for 
Ark City Juco, as the Tigers won the 
Western Division title and then 
traveled to Chanute and captured the 
State championship, all within three 
action-packed days. 

The Tigers have won the hearts 
of all Arkansas City. An estimated 
1000 A. C. fans journeyed to Inde- 
pendence and Chanute to witness the 
games or to special play-by-play 
broadcasts of two of the contests aired 
at the American Legion in a special 
hook-up arranged by KSOK. 

Winning the state championship is 
ample proof to Ark City fans and 
players of the fine coaching of Dan 
Kahler, who is completing his first 
year as a head basketball coach any- 
where. Along with Assistant "Bunt" 
Speer, he has piloted the Bengals to 
one of the greatest seasons in the 
school history, compliling a magnif- 
icent record of 23 wins and 4 losses. 

During the championship games, 
the Tigers once again showed tremen- 
dous spirit and courage. 

On Thursday evening the Bengals 
won the Western crown by knocking 
off Dodge City, 76-64. Friday the 
Tigers whipped Chanute, Eastern Di- 

Tennis, Track Seasons 
Call Tigers Back to Duty 

With the arrival of spring, track 
and tennis enter the sports picture 
at Ark City Juco with both Tiger 
squads undergoing practice sessions 
in preparation for the coming season. 
The tennis team opens its schedule 
against Tonkawa J. G, March 26, 
while the initial track event is April 
10 with Independence. 

Tennis Coach, Raymond Judd, is 
counting on five outstanding high 
school stars to give Ark City one of 
the best teams in recent years. They 
are Al Austin, Frank Scarth, Richard 
Circle, J. C. Louderback, and John 

"Bunt" Speer, track coach, has only 
one returning letterman in Frank Ba- 
ker, but hopes to gather a good team, 
with approximately 15 boys who are 
working out. 

On the tourney squad were Potter, 
Burns, Lafayette Norwood, Jim Reed, 
Cecil Hawkins, J. C. Louderback, Jack 
King, Jerry David, Recce Bohannon 
and Cy Seitchick. Joe Clark, reserve 
forward, served as team manager for 
the trip. 

vision champs, 81-73, and Saturday 
they wrapped up the state title by 
stomping all over the Black Panthers 
98-70, extending their winning streak 
to 12 straight. 

In Thursday night's fray, the 
Tigers put on a dramatic fourth 
quarter rally to stop Dodge City 76-64 
after trailing through out most of the 

Just as it seemed that the Conqs 
were going to win, Coach Dan Kahler 
sent Jackie King and Cecil Hawkins 
into the game, and from there on in, 
Dodge had had it. King and Hawkins 
started hitting the basket from all 
directions to score 18 points between 
them in the final stanza. They also 
inspired the rest of the boys to play 
just a little harder, and when the 
buzzer sounded ending the game, Ark 
City had virtually run the Conqs off 
the floor. Ray Potter led the Tiger 
scoring with 20 points and was 
followed by Lafayette Norwood with 

In Chanute for the weekend, the 
Tigers made fast work of the Black 
Panthers, winning 81-73 and 98-70. 

Friday evening's encounter was a 
thriller with the Bengals overomin'j 
a nine-point deficit in the second 
quarter to lead 41-39 at halftime. 
Chanute fought gamely in the second 
half, out the all-around sensational 
playing of Jim Peed and the great 
shooting of Ray Potter was too rau.h 
for the Panthers to handle. 

Saturday's game saw the Bengals 
put on one of their best demonstra- 
tions of the year to e?sily defeat 
Chanute 98- r /0. The 98 points was the 
highest number of points scored by 
Ark City in one game this year, 
t hanute played a good game but Kah- 
ler's boys had too much all around 
"savvy." The Tigers manipulated the 
ball in splendid fashion. Their pass- 
ing, ball handling, shooting, and team- 
work were superior. In the final 
Chanute game, Ray Potter and Lin- 
wood Burns led the scoring parade 
with 28 and 16 points, respectively, 
but they were ably abetted by the 
efforts of Jerry David, Jim Reed, 
Layfayette Norwood, Cecil Hawkins, 
Jack King, "Cy" Setichick, Reece Bo- 
hannon, Don Hunt, Joe Clarke, and 
J. C. Louderback. 

During the 3-day trip, Coaches Dan 
Kahler and Bunt Speer emphasized 
the Tigers not only played like the 
champions they are, but were a credit 
off the floor. .••-•■

Mai wot the Beauty 
With OnconUd^udion 

With the elubrooms closed, a lot of 
the students have been wandering 
around as if they were strangers, at 
the college for the first time, who 
didn't know just where to turn. 

But now with the "rumpus room" 
open, things are back to normal and 
just as they've always been. Almost, 
that is! With a complete face-lifting- 
job the elubrooms are not "just as 
they've always been" and the be- 
havior in them and toward them 
should be changed too. 

Approximately $500 was invested 
by the college student body to make 
the elubrooms a more enjoyable place 
to "recreate." Improvements will con- 
tinue to be made, but it will be several 
years before as complete a redecora- 
ting job as the present one will take 

Therefore to take care of the club- 
rooms and to preserve their beauty 
for coming juco classes should be the 
consideration of the student body of 
1953. Let's keep the best juco lounge 
in the state.

Bleed As Carpenters Learn 

Meet Ml. £d 

"Laffy," as he is nicknamed was 
born in Clearview, Okla., on Septem- 
ber 12, 1934. He seemed to stop when 
he reached the short height of 5 feet 
6 inches and the weight of 150 pounds, 
but his big brown eyes just kept grow- 

Laffy graduated from Wichita East 
last year and he is now a freshman in 
A. C. J. C. 

His favorites are lemon pie, "You 
Belong to Me," Alan Ladd, Ava Gard- 
ner, American History, tulips, Rose- 
mary Clooney, Nat King Cole, Woody 
Herman's band, and the movie "The 

Hammers banging, saws humming 
boards falling, thumbs being hit, words 
flying. Thats what's happening down 
down at the vacant lot north of the 
college shops. The carpentry class is 
building a two-stall garage which will 
be sold when completed, either by 
sealed bid or at auction, according 
to L. A. Chaplin, instructor. 

The carpenters expect to finish the 
garage before the end of the school 

Plans for the garage were designed 
by Jim Jones and Carl Holman, vo- 
cational director. Estimates of the 
cost of lumber was figured by the 
boys and sent to the different lumber 
companies for bids, and tne iiuston 
Lumber Company was low bidder. 

The student carpenters are putting 

the building together stoutly enough 
so that it can be moved. The garage 
will be planced on skids and pipe to 
move it onto a truck, then delivered 
to the owner. 

"The money that is left over from 
expenses of the material will be used 
to buy equipment for the carpint. y 
shop," Mr. Chaplin says.

Meet MUl Ca-Zd 

On July 28, 1932, in Manhattan, 
Kan., Betty White was born. She is 
5 feet 2 inches and 118 pounds of 
sleek, brown-eyed beauty. 

Betty likes to both eat and read 
in her spare time, but she says read- 
ing is her hobby. She plans to get 
married sometime after she graduates, 
and to be a good homemaker is her 
big ambition. Betty graduated from 
ACHS two years ago and graduates 
from Juco this May. 

Among her many pet peeves she 
includes Lin Burns and Seymour 
Seitchick, who tease her, and the 
colors red and pink or blue and green 
worn together. Her ideal boy is Lay- 
fayette Norwood. 

Betty's favorites are fried chicken, 
Robert Taylor, Barbara Stanwick, typ- 
ing, roses, basketball, Peggy Lee, Nat 
King Cole, and Woody Herman's band. 
Also she likes the song, "In the Even- 
ing," and the movie "Clash by Night."

College Gets New 
Spring Look as 
Landscaping Develops 

Most folks usually get a new spring 
outfit for the new spring look in some 
other way, and now the school build- 
ing is also getting a new spring look. 

George Spangler has started with 
his work of planting the shrubbery 
around the building. 

The high school agriculture boys 
assist'ng in the project, ran into a lit- 
tle bit of trouble when they started 
preparing the ground for planting the 
grass. It seems they found some large 
rcclcs that were not cleared away when 
the old hotel was tore down some 
years ago. The boys have removed 
these and new dirt has been brought

Dr. von Zahn spoke on the refugee 
question in Europe and Germany, the

Tiger Luck Holds; 
Hutchinson Mayor Feeds 
Steaks To Late Diners 

It seems that the Tigers just can't 
go wrong. Despite the fact that they 
arrived in Hutchinson when the Nat- 
ional juco banquet was over, the Ben- 
gal players ended up in the Holly- 
wood restaurant, enjoying large T- 
bone steaks. 

It all started when Coach Dan Kah- 
ler received word from a tourney of- 
ficial that the banquet was to begin 
at 7:80 p.m. though actually the din- 
ner was set for 6 p.m. At 7:30, when 
the Tigers disembarked from their 
vehicles, they were surprised to see 
everybody leaving the building with 
contented looks on their faces, and 
to add to their surprise, they heard 
comments on how good the food was 
at the banquet. 

One didn't have to be a genius to 
figure out what had happened. How- 
ever, typical of Tiger basketball sea- 
son, something turned up. The mayor 
of Hutchinson was standing a few- 
feet away from the Ark City team, 
and caught breeze of what had hap- 
pened. He immediately invited the 
team to have a special banquet of its 
own at the Hollywood restaurant. The 
Tigers were hoping that this luck 
would hold up when they took the 
court in the national tournament.

the State and Defense departments to 
study some aspects of American re-

Tigers Win Second Spot Track Team To 
In National Tournment; 
Drop Missouri, N.Y., Texas 

The Tigers' 20-game winning streak, 
and dreams for a national champion- 
ship all came to an abrupt halt, when 
El Dorado defeated Ark City 82-64 
in the final game of the national juco 
championship at Hutchinson March 

Playing before a capacity crowd of 
8500 spectators, the Tigers neverthe- 
less gained national recognition by 
winning three straight games at 
Hutch, and taking home the second 
place trophy. 

The El Dorado game brought down 
the curtain of the 1952-53 basketball 
season. The Tigers ended up with 30 
wins against 5 losses, and won four 

Moberly Is Tough 

In their opening game of the tourna- 
ment, the Tigers edged out Moberly, 
Mo., Juco 74-72 in an overtime contest. 
With Lafayette Norwood leading the 
attack, the Bengals surged to a 39-26 
halftime lead. The Greyhounds came 
back in the third quarter, outscoring 
the Tigers 28-14 to lead 54-53 going 
into the final stanza. With a minute 
and 30 seconds left, Slaughter made it 
66-64. The Missourians then tried to 
stall out the clock, but Ark City got 
its big break when with 15 seconds 
left, Slaughter-both hero and goat 
for Moberly — missed two free throws. 
The Bengals got the rebound, swished 
the ball down the court and Norwood 
dropped in a lay-up to tie the score 
and send the game into overtime. 

Seitchick hit two free throws for 
Ark City to start scoring in the...over- 
time period. Sharp sank a goal" .to 
tie. Seitchick hit a fielder, and Slaugh- 
ter's goal tied that one with 1:41 left. 
Burns canned two Tiger free throws, 
and Slaughter hit a long one for the 
Greyhounds. Ark City gained posses- 
sion on two missed charities and with 
only 23 seconds remaining Ray Potter 
dunked the winning goal. 

Brooklyn Second Opponent 

In the second round of tourney 
against Brooklyn, the Tigers had to 
tight it down to the wire to edge the 
New Yorker's 76-68. With only two 
minutes remaining the score was dead- 
locked at 65-65. 

The Bengals were a strong favorite 
to wallop the New Yorkers, but 
found themselves behind 33-27 at 
halftime. They finally went into the 
lead 48 to 46 when Linwood Burns 
scored a field-goal in the final second 
of the third quarter. In the final quart- 
er the Bengals spurted to a 9-point 
lead, only to have Brooklyn catch-up, 
but again went out in front by 8 

As a final tribute to our '52-7)3 
basketball team may we of the stu- 
dent body simply say, "It's been 
great!" You have represented the col-

many times — sportsmen on or off the 
court — indeed sets a very worthy ex-

ter was high scorer for Ark City with 
25 points. He was followed by Lin- 
wood Burns, 2.1, and Lafayette Nor- 
wood with 19. 

Score 103 Points 

In the semi-finals against Howard 
of Big Spring, Texas, the Tigers 
looked like sure champs as they rolled 
to an impressive 103-76 victory. It 
was their highest point total in the 
history of the school, breaking the old 
record of 98, scored against Chanute 

All ten players contributed to the 
scoring column. Lafayette Norwood 
was high man with 24 points, followed 
by Ray Potter 21, Gerry David 16,

In the championship game against 
Fl Dorado, the Tigers ran out of 
steam. The season's long grind and the 
strain of their 20-game winning 
streak all seemed to catch up at once 
in the second half of the game. The 
Tigers led 32-31 at halftime. Strange 
as it may seem, Ark City had defeated

Question: *7o Smoke. 
0* Not <1o Smoke? 

"Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigar- 
ette," anywhere it's permissible but 
not in the college clubrooms, where 
it is prohibited. 

Have any of you students heard of 
people having nicotine fits? We 
wouldn't want anything like that to 
happen at the college, so all you peo- 
ple who smoke, power to you, only 
how about stepping out the north 
door of the basement to the wide, open, 
lovely, fresh, spring air which is free 
out there and to which smoking doeth 
no harm. 

The student council has requested 
that smoking be permitted in the club- 
rooms and the administration is con- 
sidering the request for the college, 
but thus far results have been slow 
and the resisting forces are still re- 
sisting . 

Pending a final decision may we 
give a word to the wise: He that does 
not do that which is requested of him 
rarely is granted that which he re- 

Shall we heed the above, and gain 
a 50-50 chance of smoking privileges 
or disregard the request entirely and 
lose our chances completely ? 

Why not think it over, step to the 
north door, and enjoy some refreshing 
air with that refreshing smoke?

Movies of Tourney 
Games Shown at 
American Legion 

The Tiger basketball players were 
honored guests at the American Le- 
gien on April 3, as the Quarterback 
club of Ark City showed t.\o films 
of the Bengal games from the na- 
tional juco tourney in Hutchinson and 
elected a new president. 

George Gardner was elected as the 
new president. He will succeed Joe 
Bartcher, who was in charge of tlu 
evening's affairs. On display in front 
of the Legion auditorium were the 
four trophies the Tigers had captured 
during the 1952-53 season. 

Dean K. R. Galle introduced all 
Ark City coaches, and during the even- 
ing speeches were heard from Dan 
Kahler, Joe Bartcher and Dean Galle. 

About forty minutes of film were 
shown of the Tiger games with Mo- 
berly, Missouri, and Big Springs, Tex- 
as. The Bengals won both of these 
games, 74-72, and 103-76. Coach Kah-

Impressive Easter 
Chapel Held April 2 

A picture of Christ above a white

2, in the college auditorium. 

The Reverend Dayle Schnelle, min- 
ister of the Central Christian Church, 
spoke to the students on the "scientific 
proof of a living Christ." 

The college chorus furnished two 
numbers, "Fairest Lord Jesus" and 
"Faith of Our Fathers," under the 
direction of C. L. Hinchee. 

Don Hunt read the invocation poem. 
Gerry Bartlett sang Handel's "I 
Know That My Redeemer Liveth," 
accompanied by Mary Lou Whaley. 
The Reverend Paul Hantla, minister 
of the Frst Methodist Church, gave 
the prayer and the benediction. 

Bengals Enjoy Steak Dinner 
At Home of Mrs. M. Pringle 

The Tiger basketball team was 
honored on April 2, when Mrs. Min-

the team a steak dinner. 

Mrs. Pringle, a strong fan and sup- 
porter of the Tiger team, said the 
dinner was being given as a token of 
the enjoyment she received from the 
games she had seen. 

Carpentry Class Has 
Seven Weeks To Finish 
Two-Stall Garage 

With only seven weeks to go before 
the school term ends, the carpentry 
class is going to have to work a little 
harder in order to have their two-stall 
garage completed, according to L. A. 
Chaplin, instructor. 

Mr. Chaplin stated that the boys 
have built the cornice and are ready 
to begin with the shingles. After that, 
the class will set window frames and 
put on siding. When all that is accom- 
plished, the roof, overhead doors, and 
more siding must be worked on. The 
class will not paint the garage; that 
will be left up to the buyer. 

Already there have been three dif- 
ferent inquiries concerning the sale of 
the garage, but nothing definite has 
been announced. Working on the agar- 
age are Charles Hollmer, Charles 
Coulter, Ross Sherwood, Calvin Hock- 
enbury, Alfred Kloxin, and Duane Ar- 

Hollmer High Point 
Man in Opening Meet 

In their opening meet of the 1953 
track schedule, the Tigers took third 
place at El Dorado on April 2. Con- 
sidering that most of the boys had 
not been out for track practice very 
long, due to other school activities, 
Coach "Bunt" Speer was pleased with 
the team's showing. 

The highlight of the meet for Ark 
City was Chuck Hollmer's individual 
feats. The ex-Santa Clara star was 
high point man of the meet, scoring

ond, Parsons third and Miami, Okla

Once again representatives of the 
Arkansas City High School and Junior 
College will act as commencement 
speakers for the graduating exercises 
on May 29 at the auditorium gym- 
nasium. The junior college has not 
had participating speakers since 1946 
when Mrs. Robin Ledeker, the former 
Wilma Tanquarry, and Dale Smith 
spoke on "Our Today" and "Our To- 

Helen Gochis and Lawrence Angle- 
meyer college sophomores, will speak 
this year on "Freedom, Our Sacred 
Trust" and "Loyalty of Free Men."

ters have not been selected yet. 

Hollmer Sets Mark 
In Hutchinson Relays 

In the final regular track meet of 
the season, the Tigers placed eighth 
in a field of eleven at the Hutchinson 
relays on April 30, but Chuck Holl- 
mer shattered the old broad jump 
mark with a leap of 21 feet, and three- 
quarter inches. The old Hutchinson 
relays mark was 21 feet. Linwood 
Burns tied for second place in the 
high jump and placed fourth in the 
shot put. Reece Bohannon tied for 
fifth place in the pole vault. 

Considering that Ark City only had 
four men to compete in the entire 
meet, they did very well, Coach Bunt 
Speer believes.

Burns Named Most 
Inspirational Player 

Linwood Burns was voted as the 
"most inspirational player of the 
year" for the juco Tigers as the Ki- 
wanis Club honored all the area bas- 
ketball teams in their annual banquet 
at the V. F. W. building on April 29. 

Guest speaker for the evening was 
Hank Iba, head basketball coach and 
athletic director of Oklahoma A&M 
College. Iba's main plaint was that 
whistle is ruining the game of bas- 
ketball. He suggested that the ref- 
erees allow a little more body con- 
tact and call less fouls. 

Iba also praised Arkansas City for 
its athletic activities, and gave the 
players on the teams some individual 
advice. Members of the championship 
Tiger team were introduced individ- 
ually to the large crowd attending the 
banquet. The Senior High Bulldogs, 
Chilocco Braves, and Junior High 
Pups were also guests. 

Juco was filled with a gay spring 
odor last week when the ten cadet 
teachers decorated the halls by wear- 
ing pert, dainty corsages which were 
presented to them by their instruc- 
tor, Howard Park, at the appreciation 
banquet held April 21.

"7a ^iaetatna Qaiety 

The fact that the weather was bad 
only slightly affected attendance at 
tne annual junior college Tigerama, 
April 17. More than Z50 students, 
members of tne faculty, and visiting 
seniors from Cambridge, Dexter, Bur- 
den, Oxford, Atlanta, Cedar Vale, 
Newkirk, Wellington, and Arkansas 
Uity braved the wintry blasts. 

'1 he French theme, "April in Paris," 
was carried out throughout the build- 
ing. The stairway at tne east end was 
"A L'Eglise Sacre' Cocur" (to Sacred 
heart onurch), and "Caves De Mont- 
martre" (cafes on Montmarte Hill) 
was the clubroom, while the rest of 
tne basement was known as the "Les 
logouts De Paris" (Sewers.) The 
"isoul' Mich" (Boulevard Saint Michel 
on tne Deft Bank) is a side street, and 
tne side nailway served in this cap- 

The main hallway was the "Champs 
Eiysees ' (main street.) The reading 
i u jiii was turned into a "chez Moi- 
yneuz" (dress shop), this being used 
as the cloak room. The "Atelier De 
Mdme. Tussaud" (Madame Tussaud's 
Wax Works) was Mrs. Nevva Sar- 
tin's classroom. The kitchen was the 
"Cafe' De La Paix" (Cafe of the Rue 
De La Paix or on Peace Street.) A. 
E. Maag's speech room was turned in 
to the "Le Casino" (gambling house.) 
To get to the "Champ De Mars" 
(Military Field) to do some dancing 
to the music of Herb Jimmerson and 
his band, one had to pass under the 
"Arc De Troumphe" (Arch of Tri- 
umps.) The band was located under 
the "Tour Eiffel" (Eiffle Tower.) 

During the intermission, Master of 
Ceremonies Harry Diamond presented 
Supt. Jerry J. Vineyard, Dean K. R. 
Galle, and Cecil B. Hawkins, Jr., pres- 
ident of the Student, Council, who wel- 
comed the guests and extended an in- 
vitation for them to join the student 
body of ACJC next year Gerry Bart- 
lett, who was to sing "April in Paris", 
was the only casualty of the even- 
ing. Her hay fever was bothering 
her after some work with wild flowers 
in Kelsey Day's botany class, and she 
was unable to sing. A humorous 
speech, "Why More Married Women 
Than Men End Up in Institutions", 
was given by Janie Schell. Cal Subera 
completed the program with two num- 
bers on his saxophone. The first, which 
fit the weather perfectly, was "Stormy 
Weather", and the other was "Let's 
Get Away From It All". Howard Park 
accompanied him on the piano. After 
the program the visitors were invited 
to inspect the building. 

In receiving line were Cecil Haw- 
kins, Barbara Upson, social chairman, 
Don Fnnt, Dr. and Mrs. J. J. Vine- 
yard, Dean and Mrs. K. R. Galle, 
and Mr. and Mrs. P. M. Johnson. 

Students Line Up Jobs 
For Summer Months 

Do you ever wonder what the bril- 
liant juco scholars will do during the 
summer months? After racking their 
brains all winter and spring, making 
A's and B's, what does the person 
sitting next to you do as soon as 
school is out? How does he or she 
earn his fortune during June, July 
and August? 

Does the boy sitting on the front 
row spend 14 hours a day in the pool 
hall ? Does he sleep 17 hours a day ? 
Is he a bookie? Will he travel to 
Kublai Khan's Mongol Empire? 

Interviewing some of the juco 
scholars in the A. C. hallways, your 
reporter did manage to find out how 
some juco students will occupy the 
summer months. Several of the boys 
have become very patriotic and will 
voluntarily be drafted into the Army. 
Beginning a hitch in Uncle Sam's 
outfit will be Lawrence Stover, Sonny 
Cole, and George Bair. 

Donna Harris will work for the FBI 
in Washington D. C. Kena Lea Gil- 
land will continue her career as a 
"professional loafer", she says. Trav- 
eling to the State of Washington to 
work will be Cecil Hawkins. Harry 
Diamond will spend most of his time 
trying to arrive at a plan of "how to 
successfully elude work." J. C. Loud- 
erback will do "as little as possible" 
and visit some of the many girls he 
met during his basketball and tennis 

John Chevrount will "look for a 
ricn girl". Christine and Geraldine 
Laingor will be doing their stuff with 
the rodeo. Fred Rindt is going to Kan- 
sas City to attend embalming school. 
Mary Whaley will "try to seek out a 
rich man." Working for the city of 
Winfield will be Ray Potter and Jack 
King. Gary Thomas will attend sum- 

mer school. Linwood Burns will be a 
lifeguard in Wichita. 

Holding down jobs in Arkansas 
City are Bonnie Pancake, A. C. build- 
ing, Connie Martinez and Ernie Hart- 
man, at Maurer-Neurer; Betty White, 
Memorial Hospital, Jim Reed and 
Peggy Trent, Santa Fe Railroad. 

Joe Clarke and Reece Bohannon will 
return to their homes in Oxford and 
Cedar Vale, respectively, to work on 
farms, and C. W. Roe will travel back 
home to Texas to work for his father. 
Donna Hill continues her studies at 
Emporia State College. Lynn Brown 
seeks action in the wheat harvest and 
Lafayette Norwood will cut meat in a 
Wichita grocery store. 

In interviewing faculty members, 
your reporter found that most of 
them haven't decided anything definite 
as yet. Other than attending to some 
minor details, Carl Holman, D. C. 
Stark, A. E. Maag and Dean K. R. 
Galle have no set plans. 

P. M. Johnson will attend summer 
school at the University of Colorado, 
and live in a trailer at Boulder. Dan 
Kahler, working on his Master of 
Science degree, will attend school at 
Emporia State College. 

Mrs. Helen Randle will continue her 
work as secretary for the summer 
session and for her two week vacation, 
work in her garden and sleep. Miss 
Anne Hawley language instructor, 
along with Miss Vera Koontz, art 
instructor and Miss Myra Hardy, an 
elementary principal.will take a motor 
trip to the Gaspe peninsula in east- 
ern Canada. This is the French- 
speaking part of Canada and the trip 
will take about six weeks. Miss Haw- 
ley expects to improve her French and 
Miss Koontz to do some painting. 

To Build Clubroom Walls 

Enlargement of the college club- 
room by addition of 27 by 25 foot 
space in the southeast corner of the 
basement has been authorized by the 
Board of Education. 

The clubroom will be set off from 
the remainder of the basement floor 
by a cinder block wall, to be built 
in during' the summer vacation, Supt. 
J. J. Vineyard told student council 
members last week. In addition, a 
storeroom will be prepared for the 
clubroom by enclosing the space under 
the stairs leading to the basement. 
J. C. Louderback has been charged 
with the task of preparing nlans for 
the wall, and other engineering draw- 

ing students, under Carl Holman, will 
prepare the storeroom plans. 

The new addition, which was not 
included in the painting and flooring 
program conducted by the council 
earlier this spring, will be painted 
before the new walls go up. Painting 
of the wall itself, and finishing club- 
room furniture and recreational equip- 
ment, according to Peggy Trent, re- 
cently elected finance chairman for 
1053-54, will be a major aim of the 
student council next fall. 

No plans for improving the light- 
ing have yet been announced but hopes 
are expressed for better lighting later

THURSDAY, MAY 7, 1952 

Tigers CSose To Another St; 

Saturday afternoon the undefeated 
Tiger tennis team will be after the 
State championship, as all juco teams 
in the State of Kansas will battle it 
out at El Dorado. The Tigers go into 
the state playoffs with a perfect mark 
of 11 straight wins, and are favorites 
to win the title. 

Should the Bengals win, it will be 
the second state title for Ark City 
this year. In March the basketball 
team won the State by winning over 
Chanute in a two game playoff. 

Coach Ray Judd will have his five- 
man team in top shape for the 
matches. The team consists of Alan 
Austin, Frank Scarth, Richard Cir- 
cle, J. C. Louderback and John Shir- 

The steady parade of victories the 
Juddmen have turned in has amazed 
court followers this year. Nine of 
the triumphs have been against juco 
competitors, and two were over a 
four-year school. 

The track team will also be com- 
peting in the state championships at 
LI Dorado this Saturday. Coach 
"Bunt" Speer will only take three 
or four men to participate in the 
events, so winning the track title is 
an impossibility. However the Tigers 
will be looking for some individual 
p-lory in Chuck Hollmer, who only 
last week broke the broad-jump rec- 
ord at the Hutchinson relays.

to five in a row, with an impressive

the Orange and Black tennis team dis- 
played too much strength for their 
Winfield rivals, but the team agreed 
that this was the best team they had 
faced this season.
